How can I add a trailing slash (
/ for *nix,
\ for win32) to a directory string, if the tailing slash is not already there? Thanks!
os.path.join(path, '') will add the trailing slash if it’s not already there.
You can do
os.path.join(path, '', '') or
os.path.join(path_with_a_trailing_slash, '') and you will still only get one trailing slash.
os.path.normpath(mypath) + os.sep
Since you want to connect a directory and a filename, use
If you want to get rid of
.\..\..\blah\ paths, use
You can do it manually by:
path = ... import os if not path.endswith(os.path.sep): path += os.path.sep
However, it is usually much cleaner to use
You could use something like this:
os.path.normcase(path) Normalize the case of a pathname. On Unix and Mac OS X, this returns the path unchanged; on case-insensitive filesystems, it converts the path to lowercase. On Windows, it also converts forward slashes to backward slashes.
Else you could look for something else on this page
