Help %A in time.strftime(%A)

Hey guys,

I'm following a tutorial on Python and I came across this in one of
the examples.
(Toggle Plain Text)

import time

today = time.localtime(time.time())
theDate = time.strftime("%A %B %d", today)

print today
print theDate

import time today = time.localtime(time.time()) theDate =
time.strftime("%A %B %d", today) print today print theDate

(2007, 12, 20, 9, 48, 15, 3, 354, 1)
Thursday December 20

(2007, 12, 20, 9, 48, 15, 3, 354, 1) Thursday December 20

can someone explain to me the %A and the %B?
