Sure, that's something Python shines at. If you are very new, you
will probably want to look at some general tutorial first.

The specific functions you need are in some standard modules though,
and when you start to feel comfortable with how Python works in
general, read these:

http://docs.python.org/lib/builtin.html
http://docs.python.org/lib/module-os.path.html
http://docs.python.org/lib/module-os.html (file stuff)
http://docs.python.org/lib/module-shutil.html
