I have a legacy database that cannot be changed. The true/false values
in the database are true = -1, false = 0 (Thank you very much VB…)
Unfortunately, when I interact with these, rails/ruby sees everything
as false, which causes all sorts of havoc.
Is there a way to define (in my model or elsewhere) true as -1 instead
Is there a way to access the true/false field as an integer so I can
manually test for true/false by
if customer.some_field == -1 then…
Thanks for your help. The lifeline of my project / job depend on
making this work.
