This class can be used to save a file in a convenient way, by giving you a very simple save-file functionality. I liked the name 'save_file()' a lot, and I found that I was needing such a functionality in many of my projects, so I made a tiny gem that would do exactly this. Of course you can use File.open() or File.new() and so on but I did not want to deal with file permissions, I just wanted an API that is simple. Usage examples: require 'save_file' save_what_into('test', '/tmp/test.txt') You can also use: SaveFile.write_what_into(what, into) SaveFile.append_what_into(what, into) This project has no external dependencies. Version 1.0.3 made it more clear when to use save_file() and when to use append_into_file(). If you have specific suggestions to make this gem more useful for others, please drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
