ruby rest-client posting String as a file multipart/form-data
View post_string_file.rb
# rest-client recognizes files in multipart/form-data by checking
# the object type passed as the field content. We need to craft
# our string to appear as a file IO. `#stringfile` does that.
# An alternative approach is to just write string to a file and
# pass file IO to rest-client but this would be suboptimal
# provided we already have the content as a String.
