Use Ruby to interact with the file system. Learn how to read and write to files, import and export data, create reusable templates, and find and organize files and directories.
- [Kevin] Learning to read and to write files using Ruby code unlocks many powerful techniques. Files provide a simple and robust data storage option. Your Ruby programs can read configuration files or write to log files. You can use files to export data for other systems to use or to import data from other systems. Files can be used to automate tasks like mail merging, or Ruby can navigate a file system to find or organize files. It's a valuable skill to have in your programming toolbox. In this course, you'll learn the fundamentals of working with files and directories.
