Can't figure this out

Hi,
I’m going out of my mind trying to figure this out. I keep getting the
following error.

E:/Apps/Ruby200-x64/lib/ruby/2.0.0/fileutils.rb:1563:in path': no implicit conversion of nil into String (TypeError) from E:/Apps/Ruby200-x64/lib/ruby/2.0.0/fileutils.rb:1563:infu_each_src_dest0’
from E:/Apps/Ruby200-x64/lib/ruby/2.0.0/fileutils.rb:1549:in
fu_each_src_dest' from E:/Apps/Ruby200-x64/lib/ruby/2.0.0/fileutils.rb:508:inmv’
from
E:/apps/scripts/ruby/asura-non/FASB/process_FASB_gif_singles.rb:13:in
`’

This is what line 13 looks like:

FileUtils.mv(giffile, “F:/workflows/grafix/asura-non/FASB/scratch_gif”)

I used to have “giffile = giffile.chomp” right above line 13, but, I
took it out. I can’t seem to find any consistency with regard to
“chomp.”

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Peter

Looks like giffile is nil. How it got to be nil no one can say without
seeing more of the code.

$ ruby -rfileutils -e ‘giffile = nil; FileUtils.mv(giffile,
“F:/workflows/grafix/asura-non/FASB/scratch_gif”)’

OK. Well, here’s my code. This script is kicked off with a scheduling
utility that feeds it one file at a time, in this case, a GIF file. The
word “Orca” below is the name of our graphics server, which we HTTP
files to. Thanks a lot for your help.

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘fileutils’
require ‘net/ftp’

Dir.chdir(“F:/workflows/grafix/asura-non/FASB/in”)

exit

FileUtils.mv(giffile, “F:/workflows/grafix/asura-non/FASB/scratch_gif”)

Personally, I would check that ARGV[0] is not nil. It’s possible your
scheduling utility is passing in an blank file name or something.
