This might very well be Rails 102 stuff, but it’s doing my little head
Simple request - I want to create a link within my View to fire off a
system call to run an external program.
In this example it’s pretty easy - run a Windows system command that
simply starts something (it’s not what I’m trying to achieve but it’s
an easy debug method):
system(‘start dir > test.txt’)
How the heck do I link to this method within my View?
A simple <%= link_to feature, :method => method_to_run %> results in
the following error:
undefined local variable or method `method_to_run' for #<#:0x46c1808>
