    I have a script that has worked on previous OSs, but has recently stopped. I was wondering if someone could help make modifications to the script so it will work on Yosemite please.

    The function/purpose of the script:

    I have a folder with many (500+) files in it.

    I have a text file with 30 filenames corresponding to the contents of the folder, each on a new line.


    C.jpg etc.

    The script is to copy only these 30 files into a new folder.

    This is so that I don't have to manually select and drag them over. Especially handy when I have 200 files to choose from the folder.

    From what I can tell, it's having a problem matching the filenames in the text file to the filenames in the folder.

    I have attached a screen grab for those that are uneasy downloading the file.

    You can also download the file here:

    Thank you in advance!

    A good friend of mine wrote a small Ruby program to get this done. Solved.
