The method walk() generates the file names in a directory tree by walking the tree either top-down or bottom-up.
top -- Each directory rooted at directory, yields 3-tuples, i.e., (dirpath, dirnames, filenames)
topdown -- If optional argument topdown is True or not specified, directories are scanned from top-down. If topdown is set to False, directories are scanned from bottom-up.
onerror -- This can show error to continue with the walk, or raise the exception to abort the walk.
followlinks -- This visits directories pointed to by symlinks, if set to true.
os.walk(top[, topdown=True[, onerror=None[, followlinks=False]]])
# !/usr/bin/python import os for root, dirs, files in os.walk(".", topdown=False): for name in files: print(os.path.join(root, name)) for name in dirs: print(os.path.join(root, name))
If you will change the value of topdown to True, then it will give you the following result:
