Hi, I have group of streams in public/data folder. Here i want to download the any selected stream from datafolder. I have tried to download using 'send_data' in my show method of controller like below: send_data(@stream.location,:filename => @stream.name,:disposition => 'download') i have hyperlink called show ,if i press the link it is opening the file with stream as content. ex:i have cmd.txt in data folder,once i press the link it open cmd.txt as a file and in that file it will have filename itself. here i want to download the actual file. can any one suggest how to do download from any location and is is possible to download with send_data? thanks Srikanth
