I have a directory with a bunch of files inside:
asd3442 … and
I want to exclude all files that start with
eph with the
How can I do it?
Now we will see solution for issue: glob exclude pattern
The pattern rules for glob are not regular expressions. Instead, they follow standard Unix path expansion rules. There are only a few special characters: two different wild-cards, and character ranges are supported [from pymotw: glob – Filename pattern matching].
So you can exclude some files with patterns.
For example to exclude manifests files (files starting with
_) with glob, you can use:
files = glob.glob('files_path/[!_]*')
