FileSystemWatcher on Python 2


Posted:   |  More posts about python software

Alright, alright, you guys win. Enough people emailed me to say they would use a 2.x version of watcher from my previous post, so here it is: version 0.2 now supports Python 2. The changes are pretty simple. The "biggest" part of this happened in changeset 96f3f9e4511c, where I handle a few 2 and 3 specific parts split by ifdefs. It's a few sections of handling Unicode/strings/bytes, and then a small change for 2.x to receive the action number as an int rather than a long. I think I did all of this correctly since it works, but that's a poor definition of "correctly" and my Unicode knowledge is definitely lacking. I haven't done a ton of testing on it, but it seems to work alright in my simple test running between 2.7 and 3.1. If you have any issues with it, feel free to submit them or email me.
