thanx for the input

i am not sure if this is the right way..i used it in case
matchdistance < threshold return False.then the filename will not be
taken from the filenameslist and so returns as an empty string.

but then the call matchvalue,matchfilename=findmatchingfile()
will give ValueError trying to unpack from a one-tuple

if anyone can suggest a more decent way of doing this pls do
