As you may already have noticed, I am quite found of Python as a programming language.
I fell in love with Python some years ago, but you should know more about this soon .
Some days ago, I found myself into the very first Python script I ever written (but still use some times ). I found it funny (even more when you think that It can be reduced to a one-liner), and thought I would share it.
It aims at listing all documents from a given extension in a folder. To use it, simply run
$ docfinder folder extension
So here is the code :
#!/usr/bin/python #_*_ coding: ISO-8859-15 _*_ import os import sys def scan_rep(repertoir, extension): """scanne le rep courant pour trouver des tex""" for racine, reps, fichiers in os.walk(repertoir, topdown=True): for fichier in fichiers: if fichier.endswith('.%s' % extension): nom_complet=os.path.join(racine, fichier) print '%s '%\(nom_complet) if __name__=='__main__': scan_rep(sys.argv,sys.argv)
Pretty lame, isn’t it ?
When you find yourself a bad programmer, it is always good to look at the past and see that you actually made some progress .
