join(join('x' , 'y'), 'z') == join('x', 'y', 'z')

I expected the inner select to return about 25...

when I do this in my python code and run it in windows xp, it creates ctemp/..../.../.../../ so on and creates file t. Not file starting with the name complist and ending with .txt (complist*.txt). Any idea why this may be? glob only works in *nix not on windows? os.renames(glob.glob('complist*.txt') ,r'temp/'.join(glob.glob('complist*.txt')))

Today, I needed to concatenate a bunch of directory paths and files together based on user input to create file paths. I achieved this through nested os.path.join()'s which I am unsure if this is a good thing or not. example: if os.path.exists(os.path.join(basedir,picdir)) == True : blah blah
