I'd use a string's join() method to combine the results of a 
list-comprehension or generator that filtered the output of 
os.listdir() based on the startswith() method of the strings.

Left intentionally oblique and code-free because this sounds a 
bit like a home-work problem.  If you're a python coder, that 
should make pretty decent sense and be a one-liner to implement.
