Have you ever considered trying to write readable code instead?
Something like (untested):
def patchfiles(dir, pattern):
for f in os.listdir(dir):
if pat.search(f) is not None:
yield os.path.join(dir, f)
return gzip.GzipFile(name, "r")
return open(name, "r")
for entry in sorted(patchfiles(PatchesDir, PatchDatePat):
with openpatch(entry) as patch:
... read from patch ...
(I must admit I haven't checked whether GZipFile works with the 'with'
statement, but if it doesn't you just wrap it in contextlib.closing).
