I'm trying to open up a file with the following
absloute path in Windows 2000:
C:\Documents and Settings\Christstopher Spears\My
So I enter the following in IDLE:
>>> import os
>>> fileName = os.path.join("c:", "Documents and
Settings", "Christopher Spears", "My Documents",
>>> fileobject = open(fileName, 'r')
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#2>", line 1, in -toplevel-
fileobject = open(fileName, 'r')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:
'c:Documents and Settings\\Christopher Spears\\My
I know unit4.txt is there, but I can't seem to
convince python of that! What is up with \\ anyway?
