Hi, as known that the default encoding is set to ANSI when creating a
text file.  How can I specify the encoding type to UTF-8 other than ANSI
when creating a text file in RUBY?  Thanks a lot.

I've tried the ways found by google, but no available.  E.g.
tst = File.new("abc.txt","w:UTF-8")
There is an error message: illegal access mode w:UTF-8 (ArgumentError)

Please help me if there is another way to work it out, thanks.
