Facing Problems in Copying files from Some other path to PWD?

Hi All,

I am new to ruby and i am trying to Copy files from Some other location
to the Current Working Directory. I am using Ruby 1.8.6. Please let me
know what i can do for this? Thanks All…

Copying files can be done using the standard module FileUtils:

http://ruby-doc.org/stdlib-1.8.6/libdoc/fileutils/rdoc/FileUtils.html#method-c-cp

The current working directory can be written as ‘.’, or, if you prefer,
you can use FileUtils.getwd. It’s just a matter of taste.

Hi Ronald,

Thanks for the Support. I have a question regarding copy of files.
What will be the return type of FileUtils_cp_r. If suppose the copy of
the files is success what will it return and if its a Failure what will
it return?

I have done something like below, in order to check this, when the copy
is performed i am seeing a value “NULL” otherwise an error message.

Result = FileUtils.cp_r(SRC_Folder, Dest_older)

puts Result

No, they throw an exception on error. I don’t think the return value is
of any use.

I darkly remember that all FileUtils functions signal failure with an
exception. The documentation is not very clear in this case. You can try
it from irb, for example by specifying a non existing source file.
