[ANN] Windows Tempfile Fix Plugin

Hi all,

Yesterday, I had some problems reading JPG files in my tests. Turns
out the problem was that Windows Ruby doesn’t set it’s Tempfile to
work in binary mode. Since I deploy on Linux, that has never been a
big problem, but now I’m working on some software that works with
binary files exclusively.

Anyway, I am making this fix available as a Rails plugin.

The details can be found here:

If you’d prefer patching your Ruby, the fix is in tempfile.rb:55. Or
File::BINARY to the other constants in the File#open call.

Enjoy !

I ran into this a while back. Here’s the patch I wrote.
