specifying a directory path in python

Hi, I'm trying to write a script in python to extract data from maillogs in gz format. I wrote a shell script but i now want to do this in python, as thats the preferred method where i work.

anyway does anyone know how to specify directory paths

for example the maillogs exist in /var/log so i want the script to go to that directory

would LOG_DIR="/var/log/" work?

I recommend reading some docs and tutorials.

Yes, you can set a Python variable that way.
