Download file located outside rails aaplication folder

hi,

how can i access/download a file located somewhere else outside rails
application folder? suppose, file is in /tmp/ or /home/some_folder/ on
linux, then what should be the path given for send_file?

putting outside file path to download function?

thanks sijo. i had tried that some days back and it didn’t worked that
time but it worked today… strange. anyways… thanks for your time and
help.

btw, is there any risk putting the outside rails file path, directly in
the download function? there is something called “sanitize” in the docs.
can you or anybody explain a bit about that with some examples?
