Report generation

Hi,
i will want to generate a report based on some data in a text file.
is it possible in ruby on rails for rails version 2.2.2.
please give some hints or tutorial.

                     Thanks

If you want to deliver a report in file format, you need to use the
send_data method in the controller. This causes the user to see the
download dialog delivering a file for the user to view/save.

How to format the report is another issue. I use pdf-writer plugin
which allows creation of a pdf file format. It is a bit fiddly to
use, but is not bad, once you have got your head round how to layout
various elements. The table format can be a bit limited. (A new pdf
creator called prawn is under development which).
