i'm a beginning python programmer.

I want to get the date for yesterday

nowTime = time.localtime(time.time())
print nowTime.
oneDay = 60*60*24 # number seconds in a day
yday = nowTime - oneDay  # <-- generates an error
print yday.strftime("%Y-%m-%d")

How can I just get yesterday's day?  It a simple
concept yet it seems to be so hard to figure out.

What i'm worried about is if today is say
June 1, 2023
what is yesterday?   and how do i compute that?
