check available disk space


J

jim

Does anyone know how I can write a Ruby script that can check for
available disk space on the current working directory? I'd like to be
able to run the script from Windows and Linux.

When dealing with file systems, I usually find myself switching on a
File.exists?
=> "/dev/sda1 110650276 52580520 52449016 51% /"

This assumes only two filesystem styles (Windows and Linux)

Woot, i didn't know about 'dir /-C'

Shame on my windows-noob head. Ruby is even nice on windows! :)

Hi. I have created gem specifically for checking free disk space:
