I have a string like “Aug 13 04:21:45 2014“, how can I convert it to timestamp in python way?
With the help of python module time, it’s quite easy. All we need to do is to create a format string to match the given time. There is a list of directives can be embedded in the format string, you can refer time’s library page for details.
>>> import time >>> string = "Aug 13 04:21:45 2014" >>> stamp = time.mktime(time.strptime(string, "%b %d %H:%M:%S %Y")) >>> stamp 1407874905.0
