Python Script Help - Modified Date Format

Hello, Experts!

I am needing help with figuring something out.

I have a python script that reads a directory and gives me the last modified date. However, the output is not what I am looking for.

I get the time to be 24-hour format as opposed to US standard 12-hour format. What modifications do I need to make?

import os.path, time
print("Last modified: %s" % time.ctime(os.path.getmtime("test.txt")))
print("Created: %s" % time.ctime(os.path.getctime("test.txt")))

Hi sj77,

Try this:
import os.path, time

print("Last modified: %s" % time.ctime(os.path.getmtime("test.txt")))
print("Created: %s" % time.ctime(os.path.getctime("test.txt")))

print()
print("----------------------------")

print("Last modified: %s" % time.strftime("%a %B %d %I:%M:%S %Y", time.localtime(os.path.getmtime("test.txt"))))
print("Created: %s" % time.strftime("%a %B %d %I:%M:%S %Y", time.localtime(os.path.getctime("test.txt"))))
