2.1 mac -- Implementations for the os module

Availability: Macintosh.

This module implements the operating system dependent functionality provided by the standard module os. It is best accessed through the os module.

The following functions are available in this module: chdir(), close(), dup(), fdopen(), getcwd(), lseek(), listdir(), mkdir(), open(), read(), rename(), rmdir(), stat(), sync(), unlink(), write(), as well as the exception error. Note that the times returned by stat() are floating-point values, like all time values in MacPython.

One additional function is available:

xstat (path)
This function returns the same information as stat(), but with three additional values appended: the size of the resource fork of the file and its 4-character creator and type.
