Is it possible...?

I've made a scaffold project that has been edited so that when you
create a new task, the show method will run though some ruby code that
manipulates the data inputed. I want to make it so that when a user
types in the url http://localhost:3000/some_controller/some_method/some_id_#,
the ruby code won't run again. I tried to fix this problem by telling
the program to check if the id exsist then don't run the ruby code and
redirect the user, otherwise run the code. This didn't work becuase
the id does get created.

The other solution I tried was to create an after_filter on the create
method. The issue with this was that I couldn't get the parameters
from the form and manipulate it.

I appreciate all the help I can get!

Thanks,

Can you explain in some more detail what you're trying to do here?

Ok, well then there's a bug in your code: don't give up, try and fix it.
Post your code up please.

The code in an after filter can access params. Post your code up
please.

Basically taking a file that the user browsed on their local computer
(in this case my own computer since I'm testing it), manipulate the
file directory name and run it through an outside program. The outside
program creates a file that the user can view and I don't want the
ruby code activating again when the user reopens the show page.

This is the code for my first solution:
