I have users entering URLs into my app, is there anyway in which I can
check to see if the URLs actually point to something before saving the
user input? Maybe a kind of ‘ping’-action that returns true on success?
(btw: does anyone of a tentative release date for Rails1.1? I’ve been
slobbering all over my RailsRecipes book and I can’t wait! Also, Scott
Raymond’s compiled a list of awesome stuff that’ll be incorporated into
the next release. . . link on LoudThinking.Com)
Lots of Thanks,
