Mon, 06 Nov 2000 11:59:07 -0500
Hello, I am a newbie and this is really my first attempt at writing
something useful for myself. It's a simple hotfolder. Basically place a
file in and dosomething with it. In the example it's a move to /tmp
using os.open. I used some example code from the stat library ref.
program called walker. Just thought I'd get some feedback from the
import os, sys
from time import *
from stat import *
# Start loop by passing in a folder to monitor. Example:
# Use if statement with a +20 seconds to compare against system clock.
Used to check if file modification has stopped when copying.
for f in os.listdir(dir):
pathname = '%s%s' % (dir, f)
mode = os.stat(pathname)[ST_MODE]
t = time()
f = os.stat(pathname)[ST_MTIME]
if f+20 < t:
os.popen('mv %s %s' % (pathname, '/tmp/'))
print 'not yet'
if __name__ == '__main__':
