Write a Python program to convert two date difference in days, hours, minutes, seconds.

 

Sample Solution:

Python Code:


from datetime import datetime, time

def date_diff_in_seconds(dt2, dt1):
  timedelta = dt2 - dt1
  return timedelta.days * 24 * 3600 + timedelta.seconds

def dhms_from_seconds(seconds):
	minutes, seconds = divmod(seconds, 60)
	hours, minutes = divmod(minutes, 60)
	days, hours = divmod(hours, 24)
	return (days, hours, minutes, seconds)

date1 = datetime.strptime('2015-01-01 01:00:00', '%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S')

date2 = datetime.now()

print("n%d days, %d hours, %d minutes, %d seconds" % dhms_from_seconds(date_diff_in_seconds(date2, date1)))
print()

Sample Output:

858 days, 12 hours, 34 minutes, 21 seconds
