I am also a newbie, but I think you’re in the wrong path. According to the
Pragmatic Programmers Guide you should be using FileTest module. They sugest:
I believe File class import FileTest automatically. If this is true,
File.exist?(‘filename’) should work as well. (I haven’t tested it, though)

My first Ruby program is an equivalent of the MS-DOS ‘dir’ command -
just for learning purposes, you understand!
I can’t seem to find the method that will tell me whether or not a file
exists. File.stat(“filename”).file? (and similar methods) throw a system
error if the file doesn’t exist.
Help a newbie out? TIA.
