In Python, it is easy to get the filename without the extension. You simply need to use splitext() function. This function will return 2 parts: the filename part and the extension part. Here is how to use it.
#!/usr/bin/python3 import os # File path example. path="/some/file.with spaces.dot.docx" # Get the filename only from the initial file path. filename = os.path.basename(path) # Use splitext() to get filename and extension separately. (file, ext) = os.path.splitext(filename) # Print outcome. print("Filename without extension =", file) print("Extension =", ext)
Filename without extension = file.with spaces.dot Extension = .docx
