Hi Ruby-folks,

I am currently working on a small program, which saves copies of website 
locally to my harddisk. For normal html-pages this works as expected. 
But now I am struggeling with binary files such as PDFs.

Here is my code:

open("http://www.somewebpage.com/atestfile.pdf){|u|
   targetFile = File.new("test.pdf,"w")
   u.each_byte {|ch|
     targetFile.putc ch
   }
}

The resulting local file cannot be opened with my pdf-reader. When I 
open it in an editor, there seems only to be numbers in the file (->not 
binary).

instead of putc if tried write which did not work, too.

Any hints?

Yochen
