Derivatron Components

  1. Derivatron.rb
  2. derivatives (folder)
  3. get_derivatives_from_these_paths.txt

Derivatron.rb

  1. Found at : C:\PortableRuby\portable-ruby on the local HD of a PC workstation
  2. This script is written in Ruby and is set to look at the Get_derivatives_from_these_paths.txt file to get a list of all of the root paths for s: drive resources to be copied to the local computer.
  3. The script will copy the entire directory tree with all of its .tif and .wav media files intact and ignore all other admin type files.
  4. All of the .tif files will then be changed into .jpg files for easy quality control review

Derivatives (folder)

  1. Found at : C:\PortableRuby\portable-ruby on the local HD of a PC workstation
  2. This is the destination folder for all of the copied directory trees, and .jpeg derivatives

Get_derivatives_from_these_paths.txt

  1. Found at : C:\PortableRuby\portable-ruby on the local HD of a PC workstation
  2. This file is the list of paths to root folders from which the derivatron.rb script will copy media files and sub directories.
  3. This file will be cleared of entries every evening after the script has looked it over and done any copying.
  4. This file must be formatted with one single path per line followed by a press of the return key
