Searching for files :(
for files in glob.glob('*.txt')
Print "I Found" + Files
That should list files in current dir all *.txt?
Is there a better way of doing this? with erm the (dir) command? anything?
Please, please, please make me a simple working example im using python 2.4

If you don't care about specific file types or names then you can use the listdir() or walk() functions from the os module. Here's an example that uses listdir() for get a list of all the files in the current working directory:
The reason I've opted for this rather than walk() is simply because it is easier to work with, and unless you need to walk a directory tree is usually overkill .
>>> import os
>>> for pathName in os.listdir('/'):
... print 'Found', `pathName`
Hope this helps,

There are other ways, as netytan says, but what's wrong with glob?
Apart from your code printing each filename a few times...
for text_file in glob.glob("*.txt"):
print "I found", text_file

No problem Sara. Anyway, sbf what did you mean when you said that the code prints each filename a few times; besides several knowticable errors theres nothing that I would expect to cause anything like that?
BTW happy birthday ,

er, I meant I'm an idiot. ...
I read "files" as being a list of all the files, just because it's written as a plural. *ahem*
