zip file variable prints <zipfile.ZipFile object at 0x7f83fd13bd90> ?
#1
Below are few lines on zip log file python script.
Getting output file name as different shown below,

zip_file_name = zipfile.ZipFile(server1 + '/' + log_file_name + ".zip", "w")
        
zip_file_name.write(server1, compress_type = zipfile.ZIP_DEFLATED)
print zip_file_name
output
Output:
<zipfile.ZipFile object at 0x7f83fd13bd90>
why its shows zip file name as mentioned above ? However am seeing log file got zipped !

The zipfile itself should be outside of "server1".
To zip the directory "server1", you have to loop over the files.

!/usr/bin/python3
import os, zipfile

server1 = "test"
log_file_name = "logfile"

zip_file = zipfile.ZipFile(log_file_name + ".zip", "w")
for dirname, subdirs, files in os.walk(server1):
    for filename in files:
        zip_file.write(os.path.join(dirname, filename))
zip_file.close()

The ZipFile object has no

https://docs.python.org/3/reference/data...t.__repr__ Wrote:object.__repr__(self)
  • Called by the repr() built-in function to compute the “official” string representation of an object. If at all possible, this should look like a valid Python expression that could be used to recreate an object with the same value (given an appropriate environment). If this is not possible, a string of the form <...some useful description...> should be returned. The return value must be a string object. If a class defines __repr__() but not __str__(), then __repr__() is also used when an “informal” string representation of instances of that class is required.

    This is typically used for debugging, so it is important that the representation is information-rich and unambiguous.

https://docs.python.org/3/reference/data...ct.__str__ Wrote:object.__str__(self)
  • Called by str(object) and the built-in functions format() and print() to compute the “informal” or nicely printable string representation of an object. The return value must be a string object.

    This method differs from object.__repr__() in that there is no expectation that __str__() return a valid Python expression: a more convenient or concise representation can be used.

    The default implementation defined by the built-in type object calls object.__repr__().

class NewObect():
    pass

new_object = NewObect()

print(new_object)
Output:
<__main__.NewObect object at 0x0000021A05FD6710>
class NewObectWithRepr():
    def __repr__(self):
        return 'Has a string representation of the object'

new_object_with_repr = NewObectWithRepr()

print(new_object_with_repr)
Output:
Has a string representation of the object

As @Yoriz alread said, this is not an error:
Output:
<zipfile.ZipFile object at 0x7f83fd13bd90>
With Python3, you will get a better info:
Output:
<zipfile.ZipFile filename='logfile.zip' mode='w'>
