First of all let me say that I am an absolute newb when it comes to
rails. I am simply trying to work on an existing script that was
written by someone else.
I need to take a filename that will always have a similar name and turn
it into an rfc2822 compliant line for an xml file. Here is what I have
so far but I am absolutely lost as you can see. sad
The filenames will always be the same, e.g. November 15,2007.mp3 or
September 7,2008.mp3, etc. One thing I am concerned about is the day
since sometimes it will be a single digit and sometimes a double digit,
although I am sure their is a way around that too.
I would love if someone could shed some light on this for me. I might
even learn something in the process. smile
#The goal is turn “November 15,2007.mp3” into “Wed, 15 Nov 2007 19:00:00
#So far the output below gives me Wed, Nov15
filename = “November 15, 2007.mp3”
puts "Wed, " + ( filename[0,3]) + ( filename[-12,2])
