What did you write exactly? I tried the example from the docs and it
worked as expected
from os.path import join, getsize
for root, dirs, files in os.walk('.'):
print root, "consumes",
print sum([getsize(join(root, name)) for name in files]),
print "bytes in", len(files), "non-directory files"
if 'CVS' in dirs:
dirs.remove('CVS') # don't visit CVS directories
I ran that in a directory where if have a CVS subdirectory and that
didn't get visited.
Please do *not* send copies of replies to me.
I read the list
