I can think of two basic approaches.

One, use crontab or some other similar functionality to call it exactly twice.
Two, use crontab or some other similar functionality to call it every minute, and add code to your script to execute exactly twice. Which are you preferring?

I am running a python script and it will create a file name like filename0.0.0 and If I run it again then new file will create one more like filename0.0.1......
my code is-

i = 0
for i in range(1000):
 with open('filename%d.%d.%d.json'%(0,0,i,)): pass
 except IOError:
 dataFile = file('filename%d.%d.%d.json'%(0,0,i,), 'a+')

But It will take more time after creating many files, So i want to store value of last var "i" in a variable so that when I run my script again then I can use it. for example-
my last created file is filename0.0.27 then it should store 27 in a variable and when i run again then new file should be created 0.0.28 according to last value "27", so that i could save time and it can create file fast..

I am trying to count the number of files in a folder with python script but not getting the appropriate script. In which I can change the path and can find out the count of other folder files.

It doesn't matter for me how long the script is but need the clear script and it would be better if you can explain it also.
