Version 1.2 of the mkdtemp gem was just released. mkdtemp is a wrapper for the
mkdtemp() function in the standard C library, and it provides an easy means of securely creating temporary directories from within Ruby code.
This is a minor feature release which adds the ability to pass a block to the
mkdtemp method which allows you do conveniently execute code within the context of the created directory:
# this: # is a shorthand for: Dir.mkdtemp do # dir = Dir.mkdtemp puts Dir.pwd # Dir.chdir dir do end # puts Dir.pwd # end
The full list of changes can be viewed here, and the new version can be installed via
sudo gem install mkdtemp. If you find the Gem useful, please consider making a donation via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
