I am unable to check the files available in the directory

Tags: , , , ,



I am trying to read the csv files in the current directory. In-order to do that, I want to check all the files present in my current directory. I have tried doing it with check_output function. However, i received this error and I’m unable to figure out how to deal with it. This is the code I have tried:

from subprocess import check_output
print(check_output(["ls","../input"]).decode('utf8'))

this is the error i have received:

FileNotFoundError                         Traceback (most recent call last)

FileNotFoundError: [WinError 2] The system cannot find the file specified

Answer

You can get a list of all the files in the current directory by doing this:

import os
files = os.listdir('./')
