Stuck on an issue?

Hi, I have a rather newbie question.

Let’s say I have the following three files:

files = [

that I then feed to run_uproot_job in the following way:

fileset = {
    "Process": files

out = processor.run_uproot_job(

Assuming that I don’t know the exact number of files, is there a way to do something like the following?

fileset = {
    "Process": "/remote_path/file*.root"

Similar to what can be done e.g. in uproot.iterate.

Someday we will have this feature, though! Probably when we make an fsspec-xrootd… which I’ve been saying for long enough that I should probably just go do it.

@kondratyevd oh that’s good to know, I’ve been using das usually to create my path jsons but it would be nice to have the flexibility of fetching stuff by folder rather then dataset name
