================================================== Send2Trash -- Send files to trash on all platforms ================================================== This is a Python 2 package. The Python 3 package is at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Send2Trash3k . Send2Trash is a small package that sends files to the Trash (or Recycle Bin) *natively* and on *all platforms*. On OS X, it uses native ``FSMoveObjectToTrashSync`` Cocoa calls, on Windows, it uses native (and ugly) ``SHFileOperation`` win32 calls. On other platforms, it follows the trash specifications from freedesktop.org. ``ctypes`` is used to access native libraries, so no compilation is necessary. Installation ------------ Download the source from http://hg.hardcoded.net/send2trash and install it with:: >>> python setup.py install Usage ----- >>> from send2trash import send2trash >>> send2trash('some_file') When there's a problem ``OSError`` is raised.
