Fast and featureful directory iterator

scandir, a better directory iterator and faster os.walk

scandir is a generator version of os.listdir that returns an iterator over files in a directory, and also exposes the extra information most operating systems provide while iterating files in a directory such as type and stat information.

This module also includes a version of os.walk that uses scandir to speed it up significantly.

NOTE If you’re using Python version 3.5+, os.scandir and the speed improvements to os.walk are already available in the standard library.
