Hi,

I'm still quite new to ruby, but have written a simple code generator. 
The generator opens some files and combines them to a new one. The 
resulting file is encoded as iso-8859-1, but it looks like ruby writes 
an UTF-8 Markter to the beginning of the file. Is that possible?

How can I tell ruby which encoding to use, if I write to textfiles?

Any pointers to documentation are wellcome, but I didn't find something 
usefull using google.

regards,
Achim
