Python Script Bug

Hello everyone,
I would like to know what isn't good in my script.
#!/usr/bin/python
# -*- coding: iso-8859-15 -*-
from time import strftime
import datetime
t = input(datetime. date)
global t
print t.strftime("Day %w of the week a %A . Day %d of the month (%B).
")
print t.strftime("Day %j of the year (%Y), in week %W of the year.")
raw_input()
i get error :
print t.strftime("Day %w of the week a %A . Day %d of the month
(%B). ")
AttributeError: 'tuple' object has no attribute 'strftime'
Thanks for your Help

input() does not do what you think it does. You want raw_input().
raw_input() takes a string to prompt the user with and returns the
string the user enters.
You'll then pass the string to time.strptime() (along with a format
string) to parse it into a time tuple. You'll then pass part of the
time tuple to the datetime.date() constructor to get a date object.
global t
'global' declarations are only allowed (and only make sense) inside a
function. Remove the above line.

Based on some of the errors you've made, I'd recommend reading through
Python's fine tutorial before going any further:
http://docs.python.org/tutorial/index.html

Cheers,
Chris

Global statements are *allowed* anywhere (by BDFL decision - does not
hurt and he wants to keep code in and out of functions as identical as
possible), but rest of statement I agree with.
