How to Read a file in Elixir
Reading files in elixir is pretty straight forward - especially if you just want the content of a file you know exists. And that case it is a oneliner just like in php.
defmodule Test do def echo() do IO.write(File.read!("file.ex")) end end Test.echo()
There is a lot more to files in elixir though. Be sure to read the documentation for the specifics.
