Instance Method Details

#+(extra_path) ⇒ Object

Deprecated.

Use the #/ (slash) method instead. This method does not show clearly if a path is being added or if a string should be added to the filename

An alias for #/.

# File 'lib/filepath/filepath.rb', line 74

def +(extra_path)
	warn "Filepath#+ is deprecated, use Filepath#/ instead."
	return self / extra_path
end

#/(extra_path) ⇒ Filepath

Appends another path to the current path.

Examples:

Append a string


"a/b".as_path / "c" #=> <a/b/c>

Append another Filepath


home = (ENV["HOME"] || "/root").as_path
conf_dir = '.config'.as_path

home / conf_dir #=> </home/user/.config>

Parameters:

  • extra_path (Filepath, String)

    the path to be appended to the current path

Returns:

  • (Filepath)

    a new path with the given path appended

# File 'lib/filepath/filepath.rb', line 54

def /(extra_path)
	return Filepath.join(self, extra_path)
end

#==(other) ⇒ boolean

Note:

this method compares the normalized versions of the paths

Checks whether two paths are equivalent.

Two paths are equivalent when they have the same normalized segments.

A relative and an absolute path will always be considered different. To compare relative paths to absolute path, expand first the relative path using Filepath::FilesystemInfo#absolute_path or Filepath::FilesystemInfo#real_path.

Examples:


path1 = "foo/bar".as_path
path2 = "foo/bar/baz".as_path
path3 = "foo/bar/baz/../../bar".as_path

path1 == path2            #=> false
path1 == path2.parent_dir #=> true
path1 == path3            #=> true

Parameters:

Returns:

  • (boolean)

    whether the other path is equivalent to the current path

		return false
	end

	return self.normalized_segments == other.as_path.normalized_segments
end

#=~(pattern) ⇒ Fixnum?

Matches a pattern against this path.

Parameters:

  • pattern (Regexp, Object)

    the pattern to match against this path

Returns:

  • (Fixnum, nil)

    the position of the pattern in the path, or nil if there is no match

# File 'lib/filepath/filepath.rb', line 425

def =~(pattern)
	return self.to_s =~ pattern
end

#absolute?Boolean

Is this path absolute?

FIXME: document what an absolute path is.

Examples:


"/tmp".absolute?   #=> true
"tmp".absolute?    #=> false
"../tmp".absolute? #=> false

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

    whether the current path is absolute

end

#add_extension(extra_ext) ⇒ Filepath

Adds an extension to the current file extension

Replaces the file extension with the supplied one. If the file has no extension it is added to the filename together with a dot.

Examples:

Addition of an extension


tar_path = "archives/docs.tar".as_path
compressed_path = tar_path.add_extension("gz")
compressed_path.to_s #=> "archives/docs.tar.gz"

Addition of an extension to a filename without extensions


dir_path = "archives/2016".as_path
zip_path = dir_path.add_extension("zip")
zip_path.to_s #=> "archives/2016.zip"

Parameters:

  • extra_ext (String)

    the extension to add

Returns:

  • (Filepath)

    a new path with the given extension added to the existing extensions

    Examples:

    Extension replacement

    
    src_path = "pages/about.markdown".as_path
    html_path = src_path.with_extension("html")

    The #without_extension method provides the same functionality but has a more meaningful name.

    Examples:

    
    post_file = "post/welcome.html"
    post_url = post_file.with_extension(nil)
    post_url.to_s #=> "post/welcome"
