Hi,

I'm trying to make a ruby program which will search for and then
manipulate list of files and the files themselves.  I'm confused about
the Dir class and/or Find module. How do I specify a windows drive
letter to limit/refine my search to a specific disk drive?

Hey

Dir.chdir('c:') works on my Win2k box

And Find('c:') seems to be OK too

Cheers

Chris,

Doh!   Thanks, that seems to do it. :) Maybe it had something to do
with using freeride.  I've been playing with it for hours and just
couldn't seem to get it right :(

so I'm a little slow on the uptake...,
Chuck
