Formatting dates and times


#1

In Python, I do this to format date and time in a certain fashion.

q = time.strftime(’%Y-%m-%d’, time.localtime())
r = time.strftime(’%H:%M:%S’, time.localtime())

I am formatting by YYYY-MM-DD and HH:MM:SS (I keep dashes between the
YYYY MM DD and colons between HH MM SS.

How is this done in Ruby?

Time.now.strftime(’%Y-%m-%d’)

See Time#strftime:

Time.new.strftime(’%Y-%m-%d’) -> “2006-03-14”

Thanks… I came across the answer soon after posting. I should research
more before posting!

Thanks again,
