I'm building an app where I keep a large number of files on the
harddisk such as RAILS_ROOT/public/data/foo.bin etc..
Within my database I have a field that gives me foo.bin.
In a view how do I get a fully qualified url such as http://localhost:3000/data/foo.bin?
I tried using link_to but that gives a relative path.
c:\> rails --version
Thanks in advance,
