      # Sends the file, by default streaming it 4096 bytes at a time. This way the
      # whole file doesn't need to be read into memory at once. This makes it
      # feasible to send even large files. You can optionally turn off streaming
      # and send the whole file at once.
      # Be careful to sanitize the path parameter if it is coming from a web
      # page. <tt>send_file(params[:path])</tt> allows a malicious user to
      # download any file on your server.
      # Options:
      # * <tt>:filename</tt> - suggests a filename for the browser to use.
      #   Defaults to <tt>File.basename(path)</tt>.
      # * <tt>:type</tt> - specifies an HTTP content type. Defaults to 'application/octet-stream'.
      # * <tt>:length</tt> - used to manually override the length (in bytes) of the content that
      #   is going to be sent to the client. Defaults to <tt>File.size(path)</tt>.
      # * <tt>:disposition</tt> - specifies whether the file will be shown inline or downloaded.
      #   Valid values are 'inline' and 'attachment' (default).
      # * <tt>:stream</tt> - whether to send the file to the user agent as it is read (+true+)
      #   or to read the entire file before sending (+false+). Defaults to +true+.
      # * <tt>:buffer_size</tt> - specifies size (in bytes) of the buffer used to stream the file.
      #   Defaults to 4096.
      # * <tt>:status</tt> - specifies the status code to send with the response. Defaults to '200 OK'.
      # * <tt>:url_based_filename</tt> - set to +true+ if you want the browser guess the filename from
      #   the URL, which is necessary for i18n filenames on certain browsers
      #   (setting <tt>:filename</tt> overrides this option).
      # * <tt>:x_sendfile</tt> - uses X-Sendfile to send the file when set to +true+. This is currently
      #   only available with Lighttpd/Apache2 and specific modules installed and activated. Since this
      #   uses the web server to send the file, this may lower memory consumption on your server and
      #   it will not block your application for further requests.
      #   See and
      # for details. Defaults to +false+.
      # The default Content-Type and Content-Disposition headers are
      # set to download arbitrary binary files in as many browsers as
      # possible.  IE versions 4, 5, 5.5, and 6 are all known to have
      # a variety of quirks (especially when downloading over SSL).
      # Simple download:
      #   send_file '/path/'
      # Show a JPEG in the browser:
      #   send_file '/path/to.jpeg', :type => 'image/jpeg', :disposition => 'inline'
      # Show a 404 page in the browser:
      #   send_file '/path/to/404.html', :type => 'text/html; charset=utf-8', :status => 404
      # Read about the other Content-* HTTP headers if you'd like to
      # provide the user with more information (such as Content-Description) in
      # Also be aware that the document may be cached by proxies and browsers.
      # The Pragma and Cache-Control headers declare how the file may be cached
      # by intermediaries.  They default to require clients to validate with
      # the server before releasing cached responses.  See
      # for an overview of web caching and
      # for the Cache-Control header spec.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
