find.find

import fnmatch, os

def find(pattern, startdir=os.cur dir):
matches = []
os.path.walk(st artdir, findvisitor, (matches, pattern))
matches.sort()
return matches

def findvisitor((ma tches, pattern), thisdir, nameshere): #
for name in nameshere:
if fnmatch.fnmatch (name, pattern):
fullpath = os.path.join(th isdir, name)
matches.append( fullpath)

can someone explain why (matches, pattern) is doing in this two funct?

thanks

It's the first argument to `findvisitor()` which is invoked for every
directory level by `os.path.walk() `. `findvisitor()` adds all file names
that match `pattern` to the `matches` list.

Hi there, We have a compiler specific issue which requires us to force template instantiation. This works fine. The problem comes when I try using std:find() on vector. Since vector has no member function find() and I have to use std::find(). The linker fails on unsatisified symbols in find(). I think this is because find() is a template function and I have to force instantiation. However, I donot know the correct syntax of doing so....

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,...
