Fill in the missing code:
def print_directory_contents(sPath): """ This function takes the name of a directory and prints out the paths files within that directory as well as any files contained in contained directories. This function is similar to os.walk. Please don't use os.walk in your answer. We are interested in your ability to work with nested structures. """ fill_this_in
def print_directory_contents(sPath): import os for sChild in os.listdir(sPath): sChildPath = os.path.join(sPath,sChild) if os.path.isdir(sChildPath): print_directory_contents(sChildPath) else: print(sChildPath)
Pay Special Attention
- Be consistent with your naming conventions. If there is a naming convention evident in any sample code, stick to it. Even if it is not the naming convention you usually use
- Recursive functions need to recurse and terminate. Make sure you understand how this happens so that you avoid bottomless callstacks
- We use the
osmodule for interacting with the operating system in a way that is cross platform. You could say
sChildPath = sPath + '/' + sChildbut that wouldn't work on windows
- Familiarity with base packages is really worthwhile, but don't break your head trying to memorize everything, Google is your friend in the workplace!
- Ask questions if you don't understand what the code is supposed to do
- KISS! Keep it Simple, Stupid!
