I am new to python, and am working on a small script to manipulate
some files. My files are stored on a network directory, mapped as u:
. This is a netware server, with a unc(for example) of
I used os.listdir("u:\\:) to get a list of files, then iteratered
through them as below. The problem is os.path.isfile(base + fn) fails
every time. .isdir works OK. I have tried using both the mapped
drive, and the unc path.
base = "u:\\"
basefilelist = os.listdir(base)
for filename in basefilelist:
if (os.path.isdir(base + filename)):
print "Dir " + filename #this works
elif (os.path.isfile(base + filename)):
print "File " + filename #no matter the file i never
print "Unknown " + filename #all files print here
With a little more testing, I foung that every test fails for the
file, even os.path.exists . However, if I set base to a local
directory, it works normally.
Any assistance with this problem would be appreciated. I am running
Windows XP sp 1 with Novell Netware Client 4.83 and Python 2.2
