Public Instance Methods

ruby(*args, &block) click to toggle source

Run a Ruby interpreter with the given arguments.

Example:

ruby %{-pe '$_.upcase!' <README}
# File lib/rake/file_utils.rb, line 79
def ruby(*args, &block)
  options = (Hash === args.last) ? args.pop : {}
  if args.length > 1
    sh(*([RUBY] + args + [options]), &block)
  else
    sh("#{RUBY} #{args.first}", options, &block)
  end
end
safe_ln(*args) click to toggle source

Attempt to do a normal file link, but fall back to a copy if the link fails.

# File lib/rake/file_utils.rb, line 92
def safe_ln(*args)
  if ! LN_SUPPORTED[0]
    cp(*args)
  else
    begin
      ln(*args)
    rescue StandardError, NotImplementedError
      LN_SUPPORTED[0] = false
      cp(*args)
    end
  end
end
sh(*cmd, &block) click to toggle source

Run the system command cmd. If multiple arguments are given the command is not run with the shell (same semantics as Kernel::exec and Kernel::system).

Example:

sh %Q{ls -ltr}

sh 'ls', 'file with spaces'

# check exit status after command runs
sh %Q{grep pattern file} do |ok, res|
  if ! ok
    puts "pattern not found (status = #{res.exitstatus})"
  end
end
# File lib/rake/file_utils.rb, line 33
def sh(*cmd, &block)
  options = (Hash === cmd.last) ? cmd.pop : {}
  shell_runner = block_given? ? block : create_shell_runner(cmd)
  set_verbose_option(options)
  options[:noop] ||= Rake::FileUtilsExt.nowrite_flag
  Rake.rake_check_options options, :noop, :verbose
  Rake.rake_output_message cmd.join(" ") if options[:verbose]

  unless options[:noop]
    res = rake_system(*cmd)
    status = $?
    status = Rake::PseudoStatus.new(1) if !res && status.nil?
    shell_runner.call(res, status)
  end
end
split_all(path) click to toggle source

Split a file path into individual directory names.

Example:

split_all("a/b/c") =>  ['a', 'b', 'c']
# File lib/rake/file_utils.rb, line 110
def split_all(path)
  head, tail = File.split(path)
  return [tail] if head == '.' || tail == '/'
  return [head, tail] if head == '/'
  return split_all(head) + [tail]
end
