I’m new to programming and Ruby.
My question is, "does Ruby have a Windows extensions module that allows
access to windows OS? "
Something like the windows extension for Python written by Mark Hammond
where you can import OS and peform file copies, dir, get OS versions
I’m not looking for API or OLE control. Just direct OS control.
For direct control of Windows, you use the API.
If, however, you want a more abstract, high-level interface to files,
pathnames, etc., such as Python’s os library provides, you won’t find
them collected into one module. Check out classes IO, File, FileTest,
Find, FileUtils, Tempfile, Process, Pathname, and the constant ENV.
If you ask a more specific question about what you want to do, we can
probably narrow that down for you.
