We're back after a server migration that caused effbot.org to fall over a bit harder than expected. Expect some glitches.

The find module

(Obsolete, 1.5.2 only). The find module provides a single function, with the same name as the module:

find(pattern, directory) ⇒ list scans a given directory and all its subdirectories for files matching a given pattern.

For more information on the pattern syntax, see the fnmatch module.

Example: Using the find module
# File: find-example-1.py

import find

# find all JPEG files in or beneath the current directory
for file in find.find("*.jpg", "."):
    print file
