Core::Session#redirect? fragile in the face of rationals

Reported by Piers Cawley | May 27th, 2009 @ 07:49 AM

#redirect? works by doing

status / 100 == 3

which is fine, until someone loads a gem like ruby-units which monkey patches Integer#/ to return a Rational rather than an integer. Obvious fix is at:


I'm not entirely sure how to write a test that exposes this without adding a dependency, which seems like overkill for an obvious implementation type solution.

    • Tag set to bugfix, test!
    • State changed from “new” to “open”

    The test would be to mixin the rationality patch to the response code spec or just spec out that response code is rational.

    Do you have a library that is actually doing this just FMI?

    Well, I guess, toss in the test where you expect or change a specific int to behave rationally and I'll take a look.

    Thanks for the patch, Piers. I've merged it into master.

    Here's what I did for a spec:


    It's a little scary, but it seems to work. Also and interestingly: If that spec fails, Fixnum never gets restored to its original behavior. Not sure if there's a clean way to deal with that.
