Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video File system basics, part of Ruby Essential Training.
In this movie, we are going to take a look at some of the basic things you need…to know about working with the file system.…Now the real basics I am assuming that everyone knows.…We have files on our hard drive, they're grouped into different folders, and we…can navigate through those folders to find the files we want, and in the same…way, we can do that from the command line, we can also do that inside our Ruby…code in order for Ruby to be able to find those files.…But there are couple of pitfalls that we need to watch out for, and that's what…I want really cover in this movie.…And they are especially tricky, because they're different on…different platforms.…
Its cross-platform issues that we have, and the first pitfall is with the file…path separators, and the second is with file permissions.…With file path separators, it's a pitfall, because each of the platforms,…Windows on one hand and Unix-based platforms like Linux and Mac OS X, on…the other hand, use different separators between the folder names that lead to a file.…
