I have a gzipped xml file, which I get from a Java Client on a Windows machine. The file size is 9934 bytes. I send a MD5 sum with my transmission.
I send this file over the network to a Linux server. I receive 9934 bytes (i run MD5.hexdigest to make sure the received file is the same as the one sent).
When I write the file to disk the file on disk has 11214 bytes to it.
Ruby tells me that it wrote 9934 bytes, but the filesystem is showing me different.
Any clues? Thanks,
