# Sends the file by streaming it 4096 bytes at a time. This way the
# whole file doesn't need to be read into memory at once. This makes
# it feasible to send even large files.
#
# Be careful to sanitize the path parameter if it coming from a web
# page. send_file(params[:path]) allows a malicious user to
# download any file on your server.
#
# Options:
# * <tt>:filename</tt> - suggests a filename for the browser to use.
# Defaults to File.basename(path).
# * <tt>:type</tt> - specifies an HTTP content type.
# Defaults to 'application/octet-stream'.
# * <tt>:disposition</tt> - specifies whether the file will be shown inline or downloaded.
# Valid values are 'inline' and 'attachment' (default).
# * <tt>:stream</tt> - whether to send the file to the user agent as it is read (true)
# or to read the entire file before sending (false). Defaults to true.
# * <tt>:buffer_size</tt> - specifies size (in bytes) of the buffer used to stream the file.
# Defaults to 4096.
# * <tt>:status</tt> - specifies the status code to send with the response. Defaults to '200 OK'.
# * <tt>:url_based_filename</tt> - set to true if you want the browser guess the filename from
# the URL, which is necessary for i18n filenames on certain browsers
# (setting :filename overrides this option).
#
# The default Content-Type and Content-Disposition headers are
# set to download arbitrary binary files in as many browsers as
# possible. IE versions 4, 5, 5.5, and 6 are all known to have
# a variety of quirks (especially when downloading over SSL).
#
# Simple download:
# send_file '/path/to.zip'
#
# Show a JPEG in the browser:
# send_file '/path/to.jpeg', :type => 'image/jpeg', :disposition => 'inline'
#
# Show a 404 page in the browser:
# send_file '/path/to/404.html', :type => 'text/html; charset=utf-8', :status => 404
#
# Read about the other Content-* HTTP headers if you'd like to
# provide the user with more information (such as Content-Description).
# http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.11
#
# Also be aware that the document may be cached by proxies and browsers.
# The Pragma and Cache-Control headers declare how the file may be cached
# by intermediaries. They default to require clients to validate with
# the server before releasing cached responses. See
# http://www.mnot.net/cache_docs/ for an overview of web caching and
# http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec14.html#sec14.9
# for the Cache-Control header spec.
