File.open( “testfile.txt”, “w” ) do |the_file|
the_file.puts “I’m a line in the text file!”
end

File inherits from IO, you’ll probably want to read that as well
(http://www.rubycentral.com/book/ref_c_io.html). Also, please consider
reading an introductory text on Ruby, because the questions you’re
asking are very elementary and covered in any tutorial text.

The Ruby Book (http://www.rubycentral.com/book/) that the
documentation we linked to above is from, would be an excellant start.
There’s a whole chapter called “Basic Input and Output” that should
contain enough infos about files to get you started.

Take care,
-Tim
