A problem with Time

I need to return the date yesterday in the form DDMMYYYY. I looked through 
the modules: time, datetime and calendar but can't find anything that leaps 
out at me.

The problem I'm having is that although I can use time.localtime and get a 
tuple of the year, month, day and so forth, I don't believe I can just minus 
1 from the day, because I don't think it's cyclic, also, I can't see the 
date being linked in with the month.

So is there any way of getting yesterdays date?

Thank You
