Reading, Writing, Removing Files and Directories in Ruby


These aren't all of them, but I think they are some of the most useful.

making a directory in another directory that doesn't yet exist...

FileUtils.mkdir_p '/path/to/your/directory/that/doesnt/exist/yet'

recursively remove a directory and the contents


write a file from the contents of another file...

File.open("/path/to/the/file.ext", "wb") {|f| f.write(@your_other_file.read)}
