File.open and File.new problem for a newbie


#1

Hello

I’m pretty new to ruby and I’ve written some code to parse apache logs,
it works but now I want to store the result in a file. The problem is as
follow (using irb)

irb(main):001:0> foo = File.open(“test”)
Errno::ENOENT: No such file or directory - test
from (irb):1:in initialize' from (irb):1:inopen’
from (irb):1

I just do not understand the problem ( I can create a file with python
in the same directory ), what’s wrong for me ?

thanks for a quick answer

You must open the file for writing:

open(“test”, “w”) do |file|

end # -> File is automatically closed here, even if an exception is
thrown.
