File path

Hi,

I needed to know how to find the path of a file at a particulat
place so that it should effect all the places where its called.

I am hard coding it presently, is there a means of writing this
path some where and then calling it where ever needed

file = File.open("/home/Ruby_Files/add.rb",“r”)

Thanking You

The usual solution is to put the path into a variable or constant and
use that instead of literals.

Hi,

Thank you very much the method of assigning to a variable and then using
the variable is working perfectly.

Thank you
