I’ve written a script to generate a list of all files on a machine,
then zip the results. Im going to use it to audit some file servers.
The problem is that the ZIP compression/decrompression isn’t working,
but its not what you might think. The script completes, but seems to
not actually write anything.
Here is a short version that only looks at the C:/temp drive. You can
change this at the top.
—Start Code Here–
tempfile = “temp.csv”
outfile = “out.zip”
dirname = “c:/temp”
Prepare comma-delimited file for writing
CSV::Writer.generate(File.open(tempfile,“w+”), ‘,’) do |csv|
Find.find(dirname) do |f|
csv << [File.dirname(f), File.basename(f), File.mtime(f).to_s]
TEST: View the tempfile to make sure it has data.
This prints nothing, but the file DOES have info after
the script completes. Maybe the file isn’t written at this point?
Zlib::GzipWriter.open(outfile) do |gz|
gz << File.open(tempfile).read
The ZIP file can’t be extracted with WINZIP. No idea why, but since
I’ll be using another RUBY script for extraction, im not sure that I
