Hello Guys,


I'm using the following function 'str (now)' to place a date time stamp into
a log file, which works fine, however it writes the stamp like this.


2007-04-25 11:06:53.873029


But I need to expel those extra decimal places as they're causing problems
with the application that parses the log data, all I need is something like


2007-04-25 11:06:53


With time depicted to the nearest second, from my background in ColdFusion
development we used to have a datetimeformat() function that I could use as


DateTimeFormat(now(), "yyyy-mm-dd HH:mm:ss")


Which would give the current time a mask.


Any equivalent for this in python?
