    file_list_dataset(file_pattern, shuffle = NULL, seed = NULL)

    Arguments

    A string, representing the filename pattern that will be matched.

    shuffle

    (Optional) If TRUE``, the file names will be shuffled randomly. Defaults to TRUE`

    Details

    For example, if we had the following files on our filesystem: - /path/to/dir/a.txt - /path/to/dir/b.csv - /path/to/dir/c.csv

    If we pass "/path/to/dir/*.csv" as the file_pattern, the dataset would produce: - /path/to/dir/b.csv - /path/to/dir/c.csv

    Note

    The shuffle and seed arguments only apply for TensorFlow >= v1.8
