COMPUTR, U HAS FILE. I CAN HAS IT?

Project Description

icanhasfile is a Python module that helps you locate and operate on files using glob searches.

installashun

Run the following command to install icanhasfile:

$ pip install --pre icanhasfile

usage

To get the help dialog, run one of the following commands:

$ icanhasfile --help
$ icanhasfile -h
$ icanhasfile -?

The general command syntax is below. For a list of options, see the help dialog. In the first form, you provide an explicit path to search; in the second, the search is executed in the current directory.

$ icanhasfile [options] <path> <filepattern>
$ icanhasfile [options] <filepattern>

examplez

As an example, let’s say we have the following directory structure:

+-- pom.xml
+-- LICENSE.txt
|
+-- dir1/
|   |
|   \-- pom.xml
|
+-- dir2/
|   |
|   +-- assembly.xml
|   +-- pom.xml
|   \-- version.txt
|
+-- dir3/
    |
    \-- context.xml

If you are searching for pom.xml and want to give the absolute path to the top-level directory, issue the command below. You will be prompted to choose from three matching files:

$ icanhasfile /path/to/top-level/dir pom.xml
[0] pom.xml
[1] dir1/pom.xml
[2] dir2/pom.xml
Choose a number (q to quit):

If you are already in the top-level directory and are searching for pom.xml, issue the command below. You will be prompted to choose from three matching files:

$ icanhasfile pom.xml
[0] pom.xml
[1] dir1/pom.xml
[2] dir2/pom.xml
Choose a number (q to quit):

If you are already in the top-level directory and are searching for all xml files, issue the command below. You will be prompted to choose from five matching files:

$ icanhasfile '*.xml'
[0] pom.xml
[1] dir1/pom.xml
[2] dir2/assembly.xml
[3] dir2/pom.xml
[4] dir3/context.xml
Choose a number (q to quit):

By default, the selected file will be opened using your $EDITOR. However, you can also provide a –command option to use a different command on your path. In the example below, we will just cat out the file. Also, as it is run in the icanhasfile source directory and there is only a single matching file, the file is cat’d without asking the user to choose from multiple matching files:

$ icanhasfile.py --command cat . MANIFEST.in
include LICENSE.txt
include README.rst
