Managing file and directories using Ruby


#1

Hi group,

I was wondering how you would go about managing files and folders using
Ruby and ROR.

The Ruby script I’m writing traverses a directory tree and manipulates
the content of files. This is all relatively straightforward but what I
cannot find is information on how to access file properties such as
creation, modification date.

I’m using ‘find’ and ‘fileutils’

Kind regards,

Onno

File.mtime(‘filename’)

Also look at File::Stat
