Re: simple get file by filename

A regular expression will do just fine.

entries.each do |entry|
puts entry if entry =~ /^jpg_image/

Subject: simple get file by filename

Consider this:

I have a list of files that I get by calling:


I just want to search this list and match the file name that matches
1_1.* ( i.e. the filename without the extension)

So, for example, If the pattern to match against the list was
“jpg_image.” it should return the filename “jpg_image.jpg” (assuming
the file exists).

What’s the most succinct way to do this in ruby?
