Beginner question exifr returns errors


#1

Hello everyone,

I’ve a piece of code that looks for ‘jpeg’ files and reads their exif
and then puts them into appropriate folders. Some times ‘bad formated’
jpeg-files gives me a runtime error on the exifr call.

How can I avoid this ? In the case of a bad formated jpeg file I would
like to be able to read the next one, without interrupting the program

My code is :

if (File.stat(f).ftype == “file”) and (f.include? “.jpg” or
f.include? “.JPG”) then
j = EXIFR::JPEG.new(f)

   if j.exif? then

     my_date  = j.date_time_original.to_s.split
     my_month = my_date[1]

thanks for your answers

You can rescue the exception and log it, ignore it, whatever.

HTH,
