I am a fairly new member to RoR community and programming for that
matter. I want to create a Rails app that pulls info from a file on a
computer every time that file changes.
-So I'm thinking I need to have some code installed on the client
-the installed code would have to be at the admin level incase any
user causes the file to change?
-the installed code would then report back to a Rails application
after each change of the file
-the program would need to run in the background no matter who is
Would a Ruby written program be the correct choice on the client
computer or should that part of the equation be written in something
Anyone see in problems with trying to create this?
