My First Almost Serious Ruby Program - Critique it

This is a follow up on what I this posting

http://groups.google.co.uk/group/ruby-talk-google/browse_frm/thread/b58ab3c4876da743/d70309f2a864ed85?lnk=st&q=voipfc&rnum=9&hl=en#d70309f2a864ed85

It is based on info from here http://freshmeat.net/articles/view/447/
and
http://www.oreillynet.com/onjava/blog/2006/03/recursive_directory_list_with.html

It is a templating program that takes a source directory, reads the
files there and outputs them to a destination directory, adjusting both
values and file paths alike.

Main Program

templatefiller.rb

require ‘find’

class Template

Construct the template object with the template and the

replacement values. “values” can be a hash, a function,

or a method.

def initialize(replaceStr, values, fileReplaceStr, fileValues)
@replaceStrs = {}
if values.kind_of?( Hash )
@replaceStrs[ replaceStr ] = values.method( :fetch )
else
@replaceStrs[ replaceStr ] = values.clone()
end

@fileReplaceStrs = {}
if fileValues.kind_of?( Hash )
  @fileReplaceStrs[ fileReplaceStr ] = fileValues.method( :fetch )
else
  @fileReplaceStrs[ fileReplaceStr ] = fileValues.clone()
end

end

def run(inStream)
outStream = inStream.clone()
@replaceStrs.keys.each { |fileReplaceStr|
outStream.gsub!( /#{fileReplaceStr}(.*?)#{fileReplaceStr}/ ) {
@replaceStrs[ fileReplaceStr ].call( $1 ).to_s
}
}
outStream
end

def runFile(inStream)
outStream = inStream.clone()
@fileReplaceStrs.keys.each { |fileReplaceStr|
outStream.gsub!( /#{fileReplaceStr}(.*?)#{fileReplaceStr}/ ) {
@fileReplaceStrs[fileReplaceStr ].call( $1 ).to_s
}
}
outStream
end

def to_s()
run();
end
end

if File.exists?(ARGV[0])
inputFile = ARGV[0];
else
puts “File #{ARGV[0]} does not exist.\n”
exit
end

ini_hash = {}
ini_hash[""] = section_hash = {} # default unnamed section

data = File.read(inputFile)

data.each do |line|
if /^[.+]$/ =~ line # section headers are surrounded by brackets
ini_hash[line.chomp.gsub(/[[]]/, ‘’)] = section_hash = {}
else
key,value = line.chomp.split("=",2)
if value
section_hash[key] = value
#puts " #{key} is #{value} "
else
#puts "key is #{key} nil? How about value? #{value} and
section_hash[#{key}] = " if key.nil?
end
end
end

example of walking through the whole thing

ini_hash.each do |k, v|
unless k.empty?

v.each {|sk, sv| puts " #{sk}=#{sv}"}

	v.each do |sk, sv|
		unless sk.nil?

		end
	end
end

end

$matchesTemplate = Template.new(ini_hash[“Directories”][“escape”],
ini_hash[“TemplateValues”], ini_hash[“Directories”][“outEscape”],
ini_hash[“PathTemplates”])

inDir = ini_hash[“Directories”][“input_directory”]
outDir = ini_hash[“Directories”][“output_directory”]
puts “Input Directory is - #{inDir}”
puts “Output Directory is - #{outDir}”
dirs = [inDir]
excludes = [“CVS”,“classes”,“images”,“lib”,“tlds”]
for dir in dirs
Find.find(dir) do |path|
if FileTest.directory?(path)
if excludes.include?(File.basename(path))
Find.prune # Don’t look any further into this directory.
else
next
end
else
if FileTest.file?(path)
if excludes.include?(File.basename(path)) == true
next
end
data = File.read(path)
outFileName = outDir + path[inDir.length, path.length -
inDir.length]
zFileName = $matchesTemplate.runFile(outFileName)
f = File::open( zFileName, “w” )
f << $matchesTemplate.run(data)
f.close()
end
end
end
end
