I have this strange newbie problem with pdf::Writer in Ruby on rails. (MacOSX, MAMP, Locomotive, TExtmate)

I took the first example out of the article, and it does actually saves the file, but... NOT to the desktop, but to the railsrootdirectory. Whatever I try, I can't get it to download it to the desktop, and I cannot find an explanation how to get the files there. Without it, the whole idea of pdf::writer seems a bit lost to me.
Could someone help me out here?
Many thanks inb advance.
Rudi

Hi,

I am new to ruby and right now I am trying to do an export of a HTML table to a pdf file.

Firstly, I have a dynamic data in the table whereby user needs to select different drop down lists and send the values to the back end to query the database and display the result. I am using ajax to do this.

However, I still don't know how to create a pdf file of a HTML table.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thanks.

I'm trying to do the Marshal dumping and loading. Everything works fine from my Rails console but I get the error message "dump format error" via the web browser. Any ideas why?

Thanks in advance,
Franz

For some reason I haven't figured out yet, the dump formats differ when dumping from the console and from within my rails app. I did the dump from my rails app and used that as my template and now all is working as it should.

Thanks for making such a useful PDF tool for ruby.

Kind regards,
Franz

I need to open an existing PDF file and add some text to it. Is this possible using PDF::Writer?
