Read File As String
To read an entire file it is not necessary to read it line by line and reassemble the lines like this
def get_file_as_string(path) text = '' file = File.open(path, "r") file.each_line do |line| text += line end return text end
File.read(path) is sufficient.
def get_file_as_string(path) text = File.read(path) end
