comment Move files based on list of old and new file paths
still many errors ...hmm..I paraphrase... <old_file> exists but error says {No such file...} to {old_file} OR {new_filename} before new is created??? in line ending with (Errno::ENOENT) .. see dropbox "Ruby error take 2.txt" some errors show {new_filename} to {new_filename}

@slhck perhaps but thats too easy. An old dog trying to learn scripting since HPbasic and Forth days is good for my soul. Error log put in dropbox. Take a peek. How do I append other characters in file name filter syntax _&' etc

thanks @slhck for helping me understand the syntax of Ruby with my example question. I thought my generalization of .xxx extension would suffice but I should know better to state all the assumptions such as filespec rules and language and UTF-8. Some filenames deleted had Japanese characters. will try now.

nope>> ruby tony.rb tony.rb:2: undefined method +' for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError) from tony.rb:1:in each_line' << I agree it is insane. I could do it in excel using string match for file extensions using a common set of a few .xxx and last occurrence of / to denote beginning of file name.back in 3 hrs

This challenge becomes even more difficult when you consider the depth of filename specs and incompatibilities across platforms but I choose to *ignore that for now.. e.g Chinese font text and RTL Language fonts

found a space after EOS from copy&paste of code... trashed the shovel.... now says ... /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutil‌​s.rb:505:in rename': No such file or directory - /path/old file name.ext or /path/new file name.ext (Errno::ENOENT) from /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutil‌​s.rb:505:in mv' etc ... I think I need to replace that with something for input.txt
