Is whitespace name possible? I tried:
and it gives the error:
WindowsError: [Error 183] Cannot create a file when that file already
exists: 'C:\\somedir\\ '
Every single way I can think of to try to make a name with purely space
failed. Why not make os modules special case single whitespace folder?
(give better reason than to quote the Zen)
anyway, you could always use r'C:\DataFileTypes\ '[:-1]
