filehandle

Normalize the way you get file handle from either gzip or normal file

Typical way to open gzip or regular file

>>> import gzip
>>> import os.path
>>> files = ['/path/to/foo.bar.gz', '/path/to/foo.bar']
>>> for f in files:
...   root, ext = os.path.splitext(f.replace('.gz',''))
...   ext = ext[1:]
...   if f.endswith('.gz'):
...     handle = gzip.open(f)
...   else:
...     handle = open(f)

Using filehandle

>>> import filehandle
>>> files = ['/path/to/foo.bar.gz', '/path/to/foo.bar']
>>> for f in files:
...   handle, extension = filehandle.open(f)
