This is the code I am currently using to extract a zip file that lives in the same current working directory as the script. How can I specify a different directory to extract to?
The code I tried is not extracting it where I want.
fh = open('test.zip', 'rb')
z = zipfile.ZipFile(fh)
for name in z.namelist():
outfile = open(name, 'wb')
I think you've just got a mixup here. Should probably be something like the following:
import zipfile fh = open('test.zip', 'rb') z = zipfile.ZipFile(fh) for name in z.namelist(): outpath = "C:\\" z.extract(name, outpath) fh.close()
and if you just want to extract all the files:
import zipfile with zipfile.ZipFile('test.zip', "r") as z: z.extractall("C:\\")
