Issue #1081 has been updated by Roman Gaufman.


It seems the docs here are wrong http://www.ruby-doc.org/core-1.9.3/IO.html#method-c-write -- they mention 4 arguments when only 3 are supported and the :mode isn't explained - please update the docs.

Feature #1081: add File::write() convenience method

=begin
 Please add a File::write() convenience method to the core Ruby API.
 
 Currently, it is easier to read whole files than to write them:
 
   # reading a whole file --- less effort
   text = File::read('foo.txt')
 
   # writing a whole file --- more effort
   File::open('foo.txt', 'wb') {|f| f.write 'ruby!' }
 
 This imbalance can be corrected by adding a File::write method,
 such as the following, to the core Ruby API:
 
   class File
     def self.write path, data, mode = 'wb'
       open(path, mode) {|f| f.write data }
     end
   end
 
 Thanks for your consideration.
