Hi. I need to convert the following matlab code to python:
DirList = dir(fullfile(Folder, '*.mat'));
Data = cell(1, length(DirList));
Do you have an idea of how to do it in python?

@John - you may be able to use glob to get a list of files that match satisfy a filter. Are you planning to look for mat files? Will you then be trying to open them with Python?

As @John mentioned, one way is with the glob function from the module of the same name:
from glob import glob
Dir = '.'
mat_files = glob(f'{Dir}/*.mat')
to create the Python list mat_files.
