# AtomicWrites: Serialized, Atomic File Writes in Elixir

Perform serialized and atomic file writes in Elixir with **AtomicWrites**. The
basic idea is that writes are made to a temporary file and then moved when the
write is complete. By default, the temporary write is made to the same file
system (so that the move is also atomic) and the move will overwrite any
existing file. Both of these options are configurable.

## Example

``` elixir
alias AtomicWrites.AtomicFile

{:ok, pid} = AtomicFile.start_link([path: "example.txt"])
AtomicFile.write(pid, "Atomically written content.")

## Installation
