When multiple directories need to be concatenated, as in an executable search path, there is an os-dependent separator character. For Windows it’s
';', for Linux it’s
':'. Is there a way in Python to get which character to split on?
In the discussions to this question How do I find out my python path using python? , it is suggested that
os.sep will do it. That answer is wrong, since it is the separator for components of a directory or filename and equates to
It is os.pathsep
Making it a little more explicit (For python newbies like me)
import os print(os.pathsep)
