I am relatively new to Ruby and I am considering using it for a little
itch of my own I want to scratch. It deals with sending files over a
network, but in a one-computer-to-one-computer way, not swarming like
My question is two-fold: What is, in general, the better way of sending
files across a network like this. By better I mean appropriate for
files that may be both very long and very short? Some error checking
also needs to be done so the files don’t corrupt. I realise this is not
really ruby specific, but bear with me please.
How would you do/implement this in Ruby? If I was more familiar with
either Ruby or network programming I could probably bootstrap my
knowledge, but it seems I just don’t know enough.
