How to get the device major number from a raw device number using Python?

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

The method os.major(device) extracts the device major number from a raw device number (usually the st_dev or st_rdev field from stat).

Example

To use this method, you should have the raw device number. You can use it as follows:

import os, sys
path = "/var/www/html/foo.txt"
# Now get the stat tuple
info = os.lstat(path)
# Get major device number
major_dnum = os.major(info.st_dev)
print "Major Device Number :", major_dnum

Output

This will give the output:

Major Device Number : 0
