Help with Python Script

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

some time ago SteveL gave me a python script, that can search files in the TDM installation (also inside pk4-files), which is very handy for playing around with definitions, materials, etc. Unfortunately, the script does not work with the latest Python distribution. Could someone, who in contrast to myself knows python, be so kind to correct the script, so it works? Idle gives an error that the print part is wrong; I am not sure if they have changed anything in their syntax. Any help is appreciated!

import re, os, fnmatch, zipfile

PATHS = [ r"E:\Spiele\Stealth\TDM" ] #, r"E:\dm-dev\campaign"]  
FILE_EXTS = ['.mtr'] # '.mtr', '.prt', ,'.skin','.fx','.md5mesh','.pfb', '.anim', '.md5anim','.gui','.map','.script','.gui','.def'
SEARCH_PTN = r'arm_leg' # regular expression

def searchPk4(pk4, exts):
    """Look in a pk4 archive and yield files with any of the extensions

    for member in f.infolist():

In Python 3 you can no longer write:

print "something"

it has to be


as if you are calling a function.


I have no idea if that's the only problem with the script, but it would be the first thing to try if you are getting errors about print statements.


Also be aware that you are not forced to run scripts with Python 3. You should be able to install and run Python 2 quite happily alongside Python 3, and most Linux distributions will do this by default (because there are a lot of existing scripts which have not been updated).
