List input files whose timestamp matches the given date.

  • date (datetime.datetime) – The given date.

  • root_path (str) – The root path to search the input files.

  • path_fmt (str) – Path format. It may consist of directory names separated by ‘/’, date/time specifiers beginning with ‘%’ (e.g. %Y/%m/%d) and wildcards (?) that match any single character.

  • fn_pattern (str) – The name pattern of the input files without extension. The pattern can contain time specifiers (e.g. %H, %M and %S).

  • fn_ext (str) – Extension of the input files.

  • timestep (float) – Time step between consecutive input files (minutes).

  • num_prev_files (int) – Optional, number of previous files to find before the given timestamp.

  • num_next_files (int) – Optional, number of future files to find after the given timestamp.

  • silent (bool) – Optional, whether to suppress all messages from the method.


out – If num_prev_files=0 and num_next_files=0, return a pair containing the found file name and the corresponding timestamp as a datetime.datetime object. Otherwise, return a tuple of two lists, the first one for the file names and the second one for the corresponding timestemps. The lists are sorted in ascending order with respect to timestamp. A None value is assigned if a file name corresponding to a given timestamp is not found.
