I'm just getting my feet wet with python after programming primarily in
perl since perl-3.something. I've read the Harms and McDonald ``The Quick
Python Book'', and O'Reilly's ``Learning Python'', but haven't been able to
find python equivalents to these perl tests (lots of others in os.path, but
not these :-).
if ( -x path ) # is is executable
if ( -r path ) # is it readable
if ( -w path ) # is it writeable
I would love to find documentation, something like ``python for the perl
hacker'' that would help in the transition.
