I just want some validation or correct to my implementation plan for a
modest, Rails-based Payroll system.
1. The input is going to be a set of weekly spreadsheets (in CVS form)
which the user will copy from time to time into, say, a manually
created repository Payroll\public\data. OK?
2. I tested that I could extract data coherently from a CVS file with
Ruby. The FasterCVS package did the job very well.
3. I tested that I could create a web app to extract filenames from a
directory and display them in a browser. The toy demo is stored in
Am I correct in believing I can write code (in the .erb files in
Payroll\app\views\payrolls) which can access files in the newly
created directory ..\..\..\public\data.
Does this make sense?
Thanks in Advance,
