I'm trying to import a file to reuse its functions in another file, but when I run the second file to check it was importing (it doesn't do anything yet) it prints a list of pdfs in the current directory to the console. Can't figure why, as there is nowhere I even use print in the files?
Original file combinePdfs
#! python3 #combinePdfs.py - Combines all the PDFs in the specified directory into a single PDF named dest import PyPDF2, os ROOT = '/myrootfolder/' #Get all the PDF filenames def combinePdfs(dir,dest): if dir=='': dir=ROOT #print(dir) os.chdir(dir) pdfFiles =  for filename in os.listdir(dir): if filename.endswith('.pdf'): pdfFiles.append(filename) pdfFiles.sort() pdfWriter = PyPDF2.PdfFileWriter() # Loop through all the PDF files. for filename in pdfFiles: pdfFileObj = open(filename, 'rb') pdfReader = PyPDF2.PdfFileReader(pdfFileObj) # Loop through all the pages (except the first) and add them. for pageNum in range(1, pdfReader.numPages): pageObj = pdfReader.getPage(pageNum) pdfWriter.addPage(pageObj) # Save the resulting PDF to a file. if not(dest.endswith('.pdf')): dest+='.pdf' pdfOutput = open(dest, 'wb') pdfWriter.write(pdfOutput) pdfOutput.close() def main(): dest=input('input destination filename') dir=input('input directory where pdfs to be combined are stored - just hit enter for the default folder') if dir=='': dir=ROOT combinePdfs(dir,dest) if __name__=='__main__': main()
import combinePdfs import PyPDF2, os ROOT = '/myrootfolder/' def main(): combinePdfs(ROOT,'test.pdf') if __name__=='main': main()
I've installed beautiful soup, but I'm getting error messages saying I need to convert to Python 3 when it runs the beautifulSoup files. I've checked for the latest update, and tried pip3 command in staSH which gives a no command error. I did try converting the init.py file and any others that threw up an error with pythonista conversion tool to python3, but led to further problems eventually that conversion wouldn't solve.
