General Tips

Try some or all:


Getting file and folder information

You want to know the file type or creator of a file.

>>> from Carbon import File
>>> info = File.FSSpec('Todo').FSpGetFInfo()     
>>> info.Type
>>> info.Creator

Note that FSSpecs have some issues, see

Here is another simpler way (from MacPython IDE):

>>>import MacOS
>>> MacOS.GetCreatorAndType('Todo')
('Hdra', '****')
