pathlib — Filesystem Paths as Objects — PyMOTW 3
pathlib includes classes for managing filesystem paths formatted using either the POSIX standard or Microsoft Windows syntax. It includes so called “pure” classes, which operate on strings but do not interact with an actual filesystem, and “concrete” classes, which extend the API to include operations that reflect or modify data on the local filesystem.
