From Coldfusion to Ruby..Sort of.

I finally got a small project that allowed me to utilize the Ruby language. It was a simple script to pull information from an Access database, put it in a flat file, and then upload it to an FTP site.

Normally I write jobs like this in Coldfusion. I know it's better suited to web site development but it's fast and easy to create little programs like the one I needed. In this case I did not have access to a Coldfusion server so I needed something that could run on it's own.
