Re: Can Python fix vcard files?


DotanCan Python go through a directory of files and replace each
Dotaninstance of "newline-space" with nothing?

Sure. Something like (*completely* untested, so caveat emptor):

import glob
import os

for f in glob.glob('*.vc f'):
# corrupt data
uncooked = open(f, 'rb').read()
# fix it
cooked = uncooked.replac e('\n ', '')
# backup original file for safety
os.rename(f, '%s.orig' % f)
# and save it
open(f, 'wb').write(coo ked)

The project is this: take a Vcard file exported from Apple's Addressbook and use a language that is good at parsing text to convert it into a mutt alias file. There are better ways to use Mutt with Mac's addressbook, but I want to be...
