The example

>> framework 'Foundation'
=> true
file_path = "~/Music/born_to_be_alive.m4a"
# => "m4a"
# similar to Ruby's
# => ".m4a"

the last command throws a error

# similar to Ruby's
NameError: undefined local variable or method `path' for main:TopLevel

The method parameter should be 'file_path'

# similar to Ruby's
# => ".m4a"

Note from the Author or Editor:
The line reading `File.extname(path)` should have instead read `File.extname(file_path)` since we used the variable named `file_path` and not `path`.
