What is Directory in Python?


A directory or folder is a collection of files and sub directories. Python has the os module. which provides us with many useful methods to work with directories (and files as well).

C:\Program Files\PyScripter

We can change the current working directory using the chdir() method.


Example:


>>> os.chdir('C:\\Python33')


>>> print(os.getcwd())


Output:


C:\Python33


List Directories and Files


Use method:


>>>listdir()


Example:


>>> os.listdir()


Output:



['DLLs','Doc','include','Lib','libs',... ]


Create New Directory


Use method


>>> os.mkdir('test')


Renaming a Directory or a File


The rename() method can rename a directory or a file.


>>> os.listdir()


Output:


['test']


>>> os.rename('test','new') #rename "test" into "new"


Removing Directory or File


A file can be removed (deleted) using the remove() method.

rmdir() used to remove empty directory.
