I want to write a program to let people upload files to my computer via a browser (www.mydomain.tld/upload) - what do I need in order to write this code? Do I need to use RoR (I think RoR would be an overkill in this situation)? Thanks.

only for file uploading, the most efficient way would be with rack.Look around for file uploading middleware. If you want just a bit more sugar, try sinatra. 2009/6/4 Chris H. <firstname.lastname@example.org>

For just an occasional file upload, even a CGI would be fine - especially if you have a web server already running with a cgi-bin directory. Otherwise, if you want a standalone ruby process accepting uploads, I agree that sinatra would be the easiest way to get going. get '/upload' do ... display a HTML page with a form (enctype="multipart/form-post") end post '/upload' do ... parse the params, read the file, store it to disk end
