Re: Programming question

Have a look at os.listdir and os.stat. I've never worked with 1.5, so
I don't know what will work with it and what won't,. but I'd imagine
the following ought to be fine, though.

stat_list = []
for dirent in os.listdir('you r_directory'):
stat_list.appen d(os.stat(diren t))

Being extremely new to Python, I haven't got the experience to figure this
one out on my own and frankly I am not sure I would know where to look.

Basically, what I am trying to do is get a list of each file's attributes
within a directory. Basically, the information that the 'ls –l' command
would give you in a linux shell, except the results for each file in the
directory are stored as a list.

I am presently using version 1.5 on a linux machine. I have kindly requested
my system administrator to upgrade to 2.5.2, but until then I am afraid Iam
stuck with 1.5.

Currently, the program takes any user's question and picks the best answer from amongst the possible answers given by the user....

Hi all, During my degree, BEng (Hons) Electronics and Communications Engineering, we did C programming every year, but I never kept it up, as I had no interest and didn't see the point.

I used to have one called "A Book On C", but sold it,

I've been learning how to program with C, and I can't find any info about GUI programming with C. I'm almost done with O'reilly's Practical programming with C, and would like to mess around with GUI programming with C. I understand that it's easier to move to C++ or a few other languages (namely GTK+ or QT), but I'd like to stick with just C for awhile so I don't get too confused. I've been told that I should stick with a language for...

Is it just me, or am I really observing a trend away from analysis and probem-solving amongst programmers? Let me be more specific: It seems that every day, in greater numbers, people are coming to these programming newsgroups and asking for ready-made solutions to fairly simple programming problems. They either want someone to write code for them, or point them to a ready-made chunk of software that does what they need to do. Now, I'm...
