New to Python and programing. Using Python 3.3 on OS x 10.6.8
I have been trying to get the full path of a file and "os.path.abspath("file_name") leads me to the wrong place. (The file is in a folder on the "Desktop" and abspath leads me to "Documents". Obviously when I try to open the file -using the path provided by abspath- Python says that the file doesn't exist.
What am I overlooking??
