Read a ruby script like you would read a text file


#1

Do you know if this is possible:
I want to read each ruby script in a directory (btw there a hundreds of
them) and then use that info to lable and make reports later. For now, I
just want to know if there is a possiblity to do this.

Each script contains an intialized setting that I can use to distinguish
the difference in my file standards. Later, I am going to create a
report based on what is available. Any suggestions for the below code?
Thanks, MC

Dir.entries(“C:/ScriptDirectory”).each do |filename|
if File.extname(filename) == “.rb” then #read a ruby file
File.open(filename, ‘r’) do |f1|
f1.each_line |line|
@fileStandard1 << filename if line =~ /setting343234/
puts “Stardard1” +@fileStandard1
@fileStandard2 << filename if line =~ /setting343999/
puts “Standard2” +@fileStandard2
@fileStandard3 << filename if line =~ /setting343245/
puts “Standard3” +@fileStandard3
end
end
end

##this code is a snippet I am going to use the new variables later in
the program.

What do you mean by “read”? Do you want to execute the Ruby code in
those scripts?

   @fileStandard1 << filename if line =~ /setting343234/

the program.
There seems to be a bit of redundant code. How about

@file_standards = {
343234 => [],
343999 => [],
343245 => [],
}

Dir[“C:/ScriptDirectory/*.rb”].each do |file|
File.foreach file do |line|
num = line[/settings(\d+)/, 1].to_i
std = @file_standards[num] and std << file
end
end

Thanks Robert,

Yes, I didn’t want to run the scripts only read through them and
categorize them. This really did the trick. Pretty fancy and efficient
too! :slight_smile:

Thanks, MC
