Thanks, Dan. Both of your suggestions worked for me. Now, how could I
fulfill my instructions in the filesystem itself, not just in
the array?
I know I can do it with a system(“ren *.txt *.”), but, how
would I do it
in RUBY?

To rename individual files, use File.rename. For batches of files I’m
not sure off the top of my head, but I’m guessing there’s a method in
either FileUtils or ftools.

Regards,

Dan

Makes sense. Thanks.
