Problem in copying file


#1

Hi,
I am facing a problem to copy the file.

I am getting path of the file like this
http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v2574/90/75/704291251/457931_8289306.jpg”.
I want to copy this file locally. I am trying to do this by using

File.copy(“http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v2574/90/75/704291251/457931_8289306.jpg","/images”);

I am getting an error
Invalid argument -
http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-ak-snc1/v2574/90/75/704291251/457931_8289306.jpg

I know that this is not a directory path. Is any one knows how to copy
this file?

Thanks
Tushar

File.copy only understands paths to files on your machine. To get one
from an http url you need to use net/http, openuri etc.
