As a related question, do all iterators, like my “each”

below, require an “end?”

maybe we ask first “what is a block?” :slight_smile:

Dir.chdir(“c:/scripts/ruby/temp”)

require ‘fileutils’

include FileUtils::Verbose

psfiles = Dir.glob(’*.ps’)

psfiles.collect!{ |psfile| File.basename(psfile, ‘.ps’) }

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
lose this line. you do not really need it :wink:

psfiles.each do |psfile|

puts psfile

FileUtils.cp(“psfile”, psfile + “.pageinfo”)

               ^^^^^^^^^

lose the quotes :wink:
thus, your copy will look like sample.ps.pageinfo. I prefer this one so
i can trace where my backups/copy came from originally (and it resolves
duplicate basenames, too)
