newbie :: Running script at client side

How can open a PDF/Document in browser from client m/c?

try opening the pdf file as binary data and send it with the
'send_data' function to the browser.

something like that should do the trick:

mime_type = 'application/pdf'
filename = 'filename'
extension = 'pdf'
send_data(function_to_get_the_pdf_as_binary, :filename =>
"#{filename}.#{extension}", :type => mime_type, :disposition =>

calling this function should send the pdf to the browser. than you
have a sercer side stored pdf opened on client.
don't know if there's a better way. never used server stored pdf's
with RoR. so perhaps somebody else can tell you a better way.
