Constructor Details

#initialize(io, type = 'Bank', format = 'dd/mm/yyyy') ⇒ Writer

Create a new Qif::Writer. Expects an IO object or a filepath. Can optionally take a block which will yield the writer and automatically call write afterwards.

Parameters:

  • io - An IO object or filepath

  • type - Used to write the header, defaults to 'Bank'

  • format - The format of dates in the qif file, defaults to 'dd/mm/yyyy'. Also accepts 'mm/dd/yyyy'

Usage:

buffer = StringIO.new
writer = Qif::Writer.new(buffer)
writer << Qif::Transaction.new(:date => Time.now, :amount => 10.0, :name => 'Credit')
writer.write
puts buffer

Usage with block:

buffer = StringIO.new
Qif::Writer.new(buffer) do |writer|
  writer << Qif::Transaction.new(:date => Time.now, :amount => 10.0, :name => 'Credit')
end
puts buffer
