pathinfo.py: A Python file info object

Tech Computer Center logo

The PathInfo object, defined in the pathinfo.py source file, represents status information for a file or directory. It is basically just some sugarcoating around the standard Python library functions from the os module.

Its built-in .__str__() method displays the file's information on a line with this format,

drwxrwxrwx  yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss  p
that is, the permissions (as in the Unix ls command), the modification timestamp, and the pathname.

Exported methods in the PathInfo object are listed below. Methods described as ``predicates'' return a nonzero integer for true, zero for false.
