TOTAL CHAOS...for now. Trying to merge the best of both.
Locates absolute file paths like the Windows 'where' or the Linux 'which' utility. Makes use of the PATH variable and the current directory.
Returns all matching file paths in a list.
>>> import where >>> where.where( "python" ) ['C:\\Python27\\python.exe']
Returns first matching file path or None (if nothing found).
>>> import where >>> where.first( "python" ) 'C:\\Python27\\python.exe' >>> where.first( "spaghetti-monster" ) None
which.py -- a portable GNU which replacement
Home : http://code.google.com/p/which/ License : MIT (see LICENSE.txt) Platforms : Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Unix Dev Status : mature, has been heavily used in a commercial product for a number of years Requirements : Python >= 2.3
which.py is a small GNU-which replacement. It has the following
- it is portable (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Un*x);
- it understands PATHEXT and "App Paths" registration on Windows (i.e. it
will find everything that
startdoes from the command shell);
- it can print all matches on the PATH;
- it can note "near misses" on the PATH (e.g. files that match but may not, say, have execute permissions); and
- it can be used as a Python module.
