Adding Pathname#touch

Added by aef (Alexander E. Fischer) over 9 years ago. Updated almost 6 years ago.

Description

Pathname has an #mkdir method to create a directory at the path, but does not have a #touch method to create an empty file at that path.

There were numerous cases where I had to fallback to using

new_file = Pathname.new('location/for/new/file')
FileUtils.touch(new_file)

instead of simply being able to use:

new_file.touch

I would like to add this method. If you like it, let me know. I will provide a patch then.
