python2-scandir - Scandir, a better directory iterator and faster oswalk
||openSUSE Oss all
``scandir()`` is a directory iteration function like ``os.listdir()``,
except that instead of returning a list of bare filenames, it yields
``DirEntry`` objects that include file type and stat information along
with the name. Using ``scandir()`` increases the speed of ``os.walk()``
by 2-20 times (depending on the platform and file system) by avoiding
unnecessary calls to ``os.stat()`` in most cases.
``scandir`` has been included in the Python 3.5 standard library as
``os.scandir()``, and the related performance improvements to
``os.walk()`` have also been included. So if you're lucky enough to be
using Python 3.5 (release date September 13, 2015) you get the benefit
immediately, otherwise just
`download this module from PyPI <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/scandir>`_,
install it with ``pip install scandir``, and then do something like
this in your code::
from os import scandir, walk
from scandir import scandir, walk
`PEP 471 <https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0471/>`_, which is the
PEP that proposes including ``scandir`` in the Python standard library,
was `accepted <https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2014-July/135561.html>`_
in July 2014 by Victor Stinner, the BDFL-delegate for the PEP.
This ``scandir`` module is intended to work on Python 2.6+ and Python
3.2+ (and it has been tested on those versions).
Install python2-scandir rpm package:
# zypper install python2-scandir

- Update to 1.10.0:
* remove support for pyton 2.6 and <3.3
2019-03-02 - John Vandenberg <firstname.lastname@example.org>
- Allow building on Python 3.5+, as it is useful for testing and it
should exist for when packages list it as a runtime dependency, and
it will add backports of enhancements to scandir since Python 3.5.
