Python os.fstat() Method
The method fstat() returns information about a file associated with the fd. Here is the structure returned by fstat method:
st_dev: ID of device containing file
st_ino: inode number
st_nlink: number of hard links
st_uid: user ID of owner
st_gid: group ID of owner
st_rdev: device ID (if special file)
st_size: total size, in bytes
st_blksize: blocksize for filesystem I/O
st_blocks: number of blocks allocated

Following is the syntax for fstat() method
fd -- This is the file descriptor for which system information is to be returned.
This method returns information about a file associated with the fd.
The following example shows the usage of chdir() method.
#!/usr/bin/python import os, sys # Open a file fd = os.open( "foo.txt", os.O_RDWR|os.O_CREAT ) # Now get the touple info = os.fstat(fd) print "File Info :", info # Now get uid of the file print "UID of the file :%d" % info.st_uid # Now get gid of the file print "GID of the file :%d" % info.st_gid # Close opened file os.close( fd)
Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:
File Info : (33261, 3753776L, 103L, 1, 0, 0, 102L, 1238783197, 1238786767, 1238786767) UID of the file :0 GID of the file :0
