OS module in Python provides functions for interacting with the operating system. OS comes under Python’s standard utility modules. This module provides a portable way of using operating system dependent functionality.
os.renames() method is a recursive directory or file renaming function. It works like
os.rename() method except creation of any intermediate directories needed then it is attempted first. After the renaming is done then directories corresponding to rightmost path segments of the old name will be pruned away using
Syntax: os.renames(old, new)
old: This is the old name of the file or directory to be renamed.
new: This is the new name of the file or directory. It can include a file to a
directory or a whole tree of directories that do not exist.
Note: It can also accept a path-like object for old and new.
Return Value: This method does not returns any value.
Example #1 : Using
os.renames() method to rename a file
Current directory is: C:\Users\Rajnish\Desktop\GeeksforGeeks Before renaming file: ['testfile.txt'] After renaming file: ['new_name.txt']
Example #2 :
os.renames() method to rename a file and adding it into a new directory that do not exist
Current directory is: C:\Users\Rajnish\Desktop\GeeksforGeeks Before renaming file: ['newdir', 'testfile.txt'] After renaming file: ['newdir']
