Defined in:
lib/chef/chef_fs/file_pattern.rb

Overview

Represents a glob pattern. This class is designed so that it can match arbitrary strings, and tell you about partial matches.

Examples:

  • a*z
    • Matches abcz
    • Does not match ab/cd/ez
    • Does not match xabcz
  • a**z
    • Matches abcz
    • Matches ab/cd/ez

Special characters supported:

  • / (and \ on Windows) - directory separators
  • * - match zero or more characters (but not directory separators)
  • ** - match zero or more characters, including directory separators
  • ? - match exactly one character (not a directory separator) Only on Unix:
  • [abc0-9] - match one of the included characters
  • \ - escape character: match the given character

Constructor Details

#initialize(pattern) ⇒ FilePattern

Raises +ArgumentError+ if empty file pattern is specified

Instance Method Details

#could_match_children?(path) ⇒ Boolean

Reports whether this pattern could match children of path. If the pattern doesn't match the path up to this point or if it matches and doesn't allow further children, this will return false.

==== Attributes

  • +path+ - a path to check

==== Examples

abc/def.could_match_children?('abc') == true abc.could_match_children?('abc') == false abc/def.could_match_children?('x') == false a**z.could_match_children?('ab/cd') == true

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

def could_match_children?(path)
  return false if path == "" # Empty string is not a path

  argument_is_absolute = Chef::ChefFS::PathUtils.is_absolute?(path)
  return false if is_absolute != argument_is_absolute
  path = path[1, path.length - 1] if argument_is_absolute

  path_parts = Chef::ChefFS::PathUtils.split(path)
  # If the pattern is shorter than the path (or same size), children will be larger than the pattern, and will not match.
  return false if regexp_parts.length <= path_parts.length && !has_double_star
  # If the path doesn't match up to this point, children won't match either.
  return false if path_parts.zip(regexp_parts).any? { |part, regexp| !regexp.nil? && !regexp.match(part) }
  # Otherwise, it's possible we could match: the path matches to this point, and the pattern is longer than the path.
  # TODO There is one edge case where the double star comes after some characters like abc**def--we could check whether the next
  # bit of path starts with abc in that case.
  true
end

#exact_child_name_under(path) ⇒ Object

Returns the immediate child of a path that would be matched if this FilePattern was applied. If more than one child could match, this method returns nil.

==== Attributes

  • +path+ - The path to look for an exact child name under.

==== Returns

The next directory in the pattern under the given path. If the directory part could match more than one child, it returns +nil+.

==== Examples

abc/def.exact_child_name_under('abc') == 'def' abc/def/ghi.exact_child_name_under('abc') == 'def' abc//ghi.exact_child_name_under('abc') == nil abc//ghi.exact_child_name_under('abc/def') == 'ghi' abc/**/ghi.exact_child_name_under('abc/def') == nil

This method assumes +could_match_children?(path)+ is +true+.

end

#exact_pathObject

If this pattern represents an exact path, returns the exact path.

abc/def.exact_path == 'abc/def' abc/*def.exact_path == 'abc/def' abc/x\yz.exact_path == 'abc/xyz'

Tell whether this pattern matches absolute, or relative paths

#match?(path) ⇒ Boolean

Returns true+ if this pattern matches the path, false+ otherwise.

abc//def.match?('abc/foo/def') == true abc//def.match?('abc/foo') == false

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

  !!regexp.match(path)
end

#normalized_patternObject

Returns the normalized version of the pattern, with / as the directory separator, and "." and ".." removed.

This does not presently change things like \b to b, but in the future it might.
