Exceptions

This is probably a stupid easy to answer question but it’s late :stuck_out_tongue: Is
there an exception raised when you do not have permission to access a
file? There probably is but I’m too tired to think straight.

$ ruby -e ‘open("/etc/shadow")’
-e:1:in initialize': Permission denied - "/etc/shadow" (Errno::EACCES) from -e:1:inopen’
from -e:1

Sorry to bother anyone with this. I answered my own question with
Errno::EACCES. Sorry :frowning:

It’s worth pointing out, if I may, that this sort of question is easily
answered by experimentation, using irb.

If you don’t know what irb is, you need it!
