# (http://gist.github.com/16180)
#
# By M@ McCray -- www.mattmccray.com (matt at elucidata dot net)
#
# Usage:
#
# organize_files_within( target_folder )
#
# For example, I created a script (that runs daily) that looks like this:
#
# organize_downloads.rb:
#
# #!/usr/bin/env ruby
# downloads_folder = "/Users/darthapo/Downloads"
# require File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), 'file_organizer.rb')
# organize_files_within(downloads_folder)
#
# Also, one for any random folder:
#
# organize_folder_by_type.rb:
#
# #!/usr/bin/env ruby
# unless ARGV.size == 1
# puts "Usage: $0 folder"
# exit(1)
# end
# require File.join(File.dirname(__FILE__), 'file_organizer.rb')
# folder = ARGV[0]
# organize_files_within(folder)
#
