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....
