dircache.listdi r() or os.listdir()

kai
Hello,

I use dircache.listdi r(myDir) in my module repeatedly. On OS WIN 2000
listdir() will re-read the directory structure! But on AIX, listdir()
will not re-read the directory structure (see Python Library
Reference).
I work with python version 2.2.

Now my 2 questions:
Why does dircache.listdi r() work different?
Can I change in my modules dircache.listdi r() with os.listdir() without
problems. I want to use the re-read functionality.

Thanks for your hints, Kai.

OK. I've search on google groups and around the web for this and I haven't found an answer. I'm a Python newbie and have what I assume is a basic question. os.listdir takes a pathname as an arg but it doesn't actually list the contents of the dir I pass in. it always operates on the current dir (wherever the script is run) and I have to chdir beforehand. Is that how its supposed to work? If so what is the point in passing in a...

hi check your seperator variable in the os module. :) for example >>> import os >>> os.sep '\\' Now what you do is :- >> os.listdir("D:" + os.sep + "any_other_folder_name" + os.sep); :)

Hi All, I'm currently using "os.listdir" to obtain the contents of some slow Windows shares. I think I've seen another way of doing this using the win32 library but I can't find the example anymore. My main problem with using "os.listdir" is that it hangs my gui application. The tread running the "os.listdir" appears to block all other threads when it calls this function.

I have some confusion regarding the relationship between locale, os.listdir() and unicode pathnames. I'm running Python 2.3.5 on a Debian system. If it matters, all of the files I'm dealing with are on an ext3 filesystem. The real code this problem comes from takes a configured set of directories to deal with and walks through each of those directories using os.listdir(). Today, I accidentally ran across a directory containing three...

Hi, I noticed that when I use os.listdir I need to work with absolute paths 90% of times. While I can use a for cycle, I'd prefere to use a list comprehension, but it becomes too long. I propose to add an 'abs' keyword which would make os.listdir return the absolute path of files instead of a relative path. This would bring only advantages, I think.

Hi, I'm trying to use os.listdir() to list directories with simplified chinese filenames. However, while I can see the filenames correctly in windows explorer, I am getting ? in the filename strings returned by os.listdir() for some chinese characters. What should I do to make os.listdir return what I see in Windows Explorer (i.e. the full simplified chinese filename)? I am confused because os.listdir() is supposed to have unicode...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
