Python Program to Get the File Name From the File Path – 2022

Machine Learning Projects

Hey guys, in this blog we will see a Python Program to Get the File Name From the File Path.

Example 1: Using the os module

import os

# file name with extension
file_name = os.path.basename('/root/file.ext')

# file name without extension
print(os.path.splitext(file_name)[0])

Output

file
  • Here we have used os.path.splitext(file_name)[0] to extract the file name from the path.
  • We did the same for extracting the extension where we took the [1] element.

Example 2: Using the Path module

from pathlib import Path

print(Path('/root/file.ext').stem)

Output

file
  • Here we have used Path().stem method to extract the file name.
  • Stem is the final path component, without its suffix.
