encrypt the pdf

I am encrypting the pdf in rails using pdf-toolkit

here is my code:
PDF::Toolkit.pdftk(infile output outfile user_pw rails)

It is giving error saying that
undefined method user_pw

Any suggestions

Have you provided that method or variable? If not then what do you
think that user_pw is referring to?

I think that is predefined in pdftk

Can you point me to the docs that make you think that in

PDF::Toolkit.pdftk(infile output outfile user_pw rails)

that user_pw is predefined in pdftk?

As you have coded it ruby will look for a variable or method called
user_pw from which to get the value to pass to pdftk. If you want to
pass the string user_pw then I guess that you must put "user_pw".

That is the usage summary for the command line tools, not for the ruby
api. For starters you'll need to separate your arguments with commas,
not spaces

PDF::Toolkit.open(directory+@encrypt_pdf.attach.url.split('?')[0].to_s)
