Example text

The first thing you would do is create a snapshot of C:\Program Files (this is before you install your program). Call the snapshot file something meaningful, and probably date it. snp (the current date as I write this). 2. This one’s pretty self-explanatory. Make sure you install to the default location, in the most standard way possible. 3. At this point you have created a “base” snapshot and installed your program. It’s time to create a snapshot post-install. snp. At this point, if you want to make sure you named your snapshot files correctly, you can choose option 2 from the menu and list snapshot files.

That’s because you only use a return when you have some value to return to the code that called the function. Sometimes (as in this case) a function is asked to do something but isn’t asked to return a value. The first thing it does is initialize a couple of values: snaplist is an (initially) empty list that will hold the list of snapshot files. curdir member). You assign the output to a list with the identifier filelist. You then run a for loop that narrows down the list: This for loop iterates through each item in the filelist.

That’s exactly what we did here. You encapsulated the retrieval of both files inside a single try block for code conciseness. You could have put each one in its own try block if you wanted to provide a more specific error message. The next thing you do is the actual comparison. You have imported Python’s difflib module in order to be able to compare two strings and show differences, so that’s what you implement in these next two lines: As you can see, you diff the directories and files, respectively, and assign the differences to the lists: result_dirs and result_files.
