View all content command in python

Very good afternoon with all…
I’m learning PYTHON and I’m learning how to import external libraries.
I would like to know what command I should type in order to see ALL THE CONTENT OF THE FOLDER I am addressing… thanks…

@ammed.riveros ,

can you try

OUT = dir(sys)

he content that a DIR gives me is not the content that is in the directory path…
I want to see the contents of the folder.

Just “dir” it again…

an example, to see all modules/packages loaded (.Net and Python)

import sys
sys.path.append(r'C:\Program Files (x86)\IronPython 2.7\Lib')
import os
import System

assemblies = System.AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetAssemblies()

for a in System.AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetAssemblies():
    if a.GetName().Name == 'IronPython.Modules':
        mods = a
nativeIronpythonModule = [m.Key for m in mods.IronPython.Modules]
pythonimportModules = sys.modules.keys()
OUT = assemblies, nativeIronpythonModule, pythonimportModules

I was only looking to know the name of the files and their extension… because they are difficult…
I don’t understand anything… instead of being motivated to learn… now I want to learn it less… :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob: :sob:
Why is it so difficult to get just what I’m looking for… I just want to know the names and their extension of everything that is inside the folder… NOTHING ELSE… I’m not interested in knowing other things… I get confused more

Is this more of what you were looking for @ammed.riveros

import sys
# Use a variable for the path to be able to call it other functions
iPath = 'C:\Program Files (x86)\IronPython 2.7\Lib'

# To check contents of operating system
import os

files = []
folders = []

# Get the contents of the directory
directory_contents = os.listdir(iPath)

# Check contents for type sorting
for path in directory_contents:
    # check if current path is a file by combining the directory and the path item
    if os.path.isfile(os.path.join(iPath, path)):
        # Its a file
        # Its a folder

OUT = files,folders

here an example, but what is the end goal?, you search a library before import ?

import sys
import clr
import System
from System.IO import *
from Autodesk.DesignScript.Geometry import *

my_path = System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments)
pf_path = System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.ProgramFilesX86)

ironpath = pf_path + '\\IronPython 2.7\\Lib'

lstFiles = Directory.GetFiles(ironpath, "*", SearchOption.TopDirectoryOnly)

lstDir = Directory.GetDirectories(ironpath, "*", SearchOption.TopDirectoryOnly)

OUT = list(lstDir) + list(lstFiles)
