Saving data from the output window to a text file


#1

Hi group,

I’m a complete novice who is having lots of fun discovering Ruby, Ruby
on Rails / Watir. Good bits of software.

I wanted to record the info in the output window, into a text file. I
wanted to do this in Ruby as I don’t know enough about R-o-R.

Can anyone help me out on this.

Thanks in advance

as in the output you get when you run script/server ? It’s already
being saved to log/development.log (or log/production.log when in the
production environment etc…)

Also, if you want whatever you spit out using puts

i.e puts array.inspect

then you can save to a text file by running mongrel in deamon mode

mongrel_rails start -d

This will save all output in log/mongrel.log
