Python: Get the size, permissions, owner, device, created, last modified and last accessed date time of a specified path

Python Operating System Services: Exercise-5 with Solution

Write a Python program to get the size, permissions, owner, device, created, last modified and last accessed date time of a specified path.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import os
import sys
import time
path = 'g:\\testpath\\'
print('Path Name ({}):'.format(path))
print('Size:', stat_info.st_size)
print('Permissions:', oct(stat_info.st_mode))
print('Owner:', stat_info.st_uid)
print('Device:', stat_info.st_dev)
print('Created     :', time.ctime(stat_info.st_ctime))
print('Last modified:', time.ctime(stat_info.st_mtime))
print('Last accessed:', time.ctime(stat_info.st_atime))

Sample Output:

Path Name (g:\testpath\):
Size: 546
Permissions: 0o100666
Owner: 0
Device: 4235770541

Python: Unpack a Tuple

>>> items = (0, 'b', 'one', 10,  11, 'zero')
>>> a, b, c, d, e, f = items
>>> print(f)
zero
>>> a, *b, c = items
>>> print(b)
['b', 'one', 10, 11]
>>> *_, a, b = items
>>> print(a)
11
