The error message says that strtime is NOT FOUND in the time module.

If you run pyton, import time and type dir(time), you will notice that
time contains strftime.  You can print out its docstring and get a brief
description.  I've pasted the commands and results below.

$ python
 
Python 2.3.3 (#1, Jan 29 2004, 12:42:14)
[GCC 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>
>>> import time
>>> dir(time)
['__doc__', '__file__', '__name__', 'accept2dyear', 'altzone',
'asctime', 'clock', 'ctime', 'daylight', 'gmtime', 'localtime',
'mktime', 'sleep', 'strftime', 'strptime', 'struct_time', 'time',
'timezone', 'tzname', 'tzset']
>>> print time.strftime.__doc__
strftime(format[, tuple]) -> string
 
Convert a time tuple to a string according to a format specification.
See the library reference manual for formatting codes. When the time
tuple
is not present, current time as returned by localtime() is used.
>>>


In other words, you mistyped the name of the function.
