How to list only files in a directory

0 votes

How can I list only files in a directory ignoring the sub-directories? I am using listdir method but it lists directories also:

import os
print (listdir("/home/Papers/"))

This prints directories also. I want it to print only files

Before printing, you can use a check to print the name only if it is a file. Something like this:

import os
from os import path
print(f for f in os.listdir('/home') if path.isfile(f))
