# TODO
#   - Tree-walking functions don't avoid symlink loops.  Matt Harrison sent me a patch for this.
#   - Tree-walking functions can't ignore errors.  Matt Harrison asked for this.
#
#   - Two people asked for path.chdir().  This just seems wrong to me,
#     I dunno.  chdir() is moderately evil anyway.
#
#   - Bug in write_text().  It doesn't support Universal newline mode.
#   - Better error message in listdir() when self isn't a
#     directory. (On Windows, the error message really sucks.)
#   - Make sure everything has a good docstring.
#   - Add methods for regex find and replace.
#   - guess_content_type() method?
#   - Perhaps support arguments to touch().
#   - Could add split() and join() methods that generate warnings.

        There are two differences between path.write_text() and
        path.write_bytes(): newline handling and Unicode handling.
        See below.

        Parameters:

          - text - str/unicode - The text to be written.

          - encoding - str - The Unicode encoding that will be used.
            This is ignored if 'text' isn't a Unicode string.

          - errors - str - How to handle Unicode encoding errors.
            Default is 'strict'.  See help(unicode.encode) for the
            options.  This is ignored if 'text' isn't a Unicode
            string.

          - linesep - keyword argument - str/unicode - The sequence of
            characters to be used to mark end-of-line.  The default is
            os.linesep.  You can also specify None; this means to
            leave all newlines as they are in 'text'.

          - append - keyword argument - bool - Specifies what to do if
            the file already exists (True: append to the end of it;
            False: overwrite it.)  The default is False.


        --- Newline handling.

        write_text() converts all standard end-of-line sequences
        ('\n', '\r', and '\r\n') to your platform's default end-of-line
        sequence (see os.linesep; on Windows, for example, the
        end-of-line marker is '\r\n').

        If you don't like your platform's default, you can override it
        using the 'linesep=' keyword argument.  If you specifically want
        write_text() to preserve the newlines as-is, use 'linesep=None'.

        This applies to Unicode text the same as to 8-bit text, except
        there are three additional standard Unicode end-of-line sequences:
        u'\x85', u'\r\x85', and u'\u2028'.

        (This is slightly different from when you open a file for
        writing with fopen(filename, "w") in C or file(filename, 'w')
        in Python.)


        --- Unicode

        If 'text' isn't Unicode, then apart from newline handling, the
        bytes are written verbatim to the file.  The 'encoding' and
        'errors' arguments are not used and must be omitted.

        If 'text' is Unicode, it is first converted to bytes using the
        specified 'encoding' (or the default encoding if 'encoding'
        isn't specified).  The 'errors' argument applies only to this
        conversion.

        lines - A list of strings.

        encoding - A Unicode encoding to use.  This applies only if
            'lines' contains any Unicode strings.

        errors - How to handle errors in Unicode encoding.  This
            also applies only to Unicode strings.

        linesep - The desired line-ending.  This line-ending is
            applied to every line.  If a line already has any
            standard line ending ('\r', '\n', '\r\n', u'\x85',

        you specify with the encoding= parameter, the result is
        mixed-encoding data, which can really confuse someone trying

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
