Get path from open file in Python

0 votes
If I have an opened file, is there an os call to get the complete path as a string?

f = open('/Users/Desktop/febROSTER2012.xls')
From f, how would I get "/Users/Desktop/febROSTER2012.xls" ?

The key here is the name attribute of the f object representing the opened file. You get it like that:

>>> f = open('/Users/Desktop/febROSTER2012.xls')
>>> f.name
'/Users/Desktop/febROSTER2012.xls'
