File basenames using File.basename . .


#1

I need to truncate the extension of some of my files, so that I can add
a different extension for a separate write file. I’ve tried this:

txtfiles = Dir.glob(".txt")
txtfiles.each { |txtfile| File.basename(“txtfile”, "
.txt") }

which yields this:

=> [“eula.txt”, “libcurl.COPYING.txt”, “openssl.LICENSE.txt”,
“psout2.txt”, “run
dll32.exe.Z-missing.txt”]

Obviously, it didn’t strip the extensions. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

don’t think you need the wildcard:

txtfiles.each { |txtfile| File.basename(“txtfile”, “*.txt”) }
