What is the path to a Virtual Memory file created in python?

I'm trying to create a virtual XML file, copy some content to it, then access throw parsing, it may be simple, but every path that I'm trying to use ( like 'mem://mem_test.xml' or '{}'.format(mem_file) ) are not working... What path should I use to access a file in the Virtual Memory?

  1.     import fs
  2.     import xml.etree.ElementTree as Et
  4.     mem_fs = fs.open_fs('mem://')
  5.     os_fs = fs.open_fs(".")
  6.     mem_file = mem_fs.open('mem_test.xml', 'rw')
  7.     fs.copy.copy_file(os_fs, 'test.xml', mem_fs, 'mem_test.xml')
  8.     tree = Et.parse('[string with path to mem_test]')
  9.     root = tree.getroot()

In Python, the path to the Virtual Memory file depends on the operating system being used.

On Windows, the Virtual Memory file is typically located at C:\pagefile.sys.

On Linux, the Virtual Memory file is typically located at /swapfile.

In general, you can use the os module in Python to obtain information about the Virtual Memory file. For example, to obtain the path to the Virtual Memory file on Linux, you can use the following code:
import os
path = os.path.realpath('/proc/swaps')

This will return the absolute path to the swaps file, which contains information about the swap space being used on the system.
