in what form to you want to "get" them? Standard module time
has quite a few ways to return them to you. E.g.:
>>> import time
>>> print time.asctime()

this is local time in string form, while, e.g.:
>>> print time.time()
this is UTC time in seconds since an arbitrary epoch -- and so
on, and so forth. Say in what form you want this, and module
time probably has a solution (quite portable too).
