Error running rake db:test:prepare

Hey all,

I am getting syntax errors in my schema.rb when I run rake
db:test:prepare. In my migrations, I have created columns that look
like this…

add_column :prizes, :“paypal_amount”, :decimal, :precision => 8, :scale
=> 2, :null=>false, :default=>0

and this works fine and creates the column correctly in the DB. The
corresponding line in schema.rb that gets created looks like this (the
paypal_error column is shown for context)…


t.column “paypal_amount”, :decimal, :limit => 8, :default =>
#BigDecimal:43fac10,‘0.0’,4(8), :null => false
t.column “paypal_error”, :string

Now when I run rake db:test:prepare, I get errors like the following…

C:/InstantRails-2.0-win/rails_apps/chicago/db/schema.rb:93: syntax
error, unexpe
cted ‘,’, expecting kEND
t.column “paypal_error”, :string

It seems that the “BigDecimal” syntax that rails creates in schema.rb is
not correct, but I’m not sure if I did something wrong or if this is a
bug. I tried recreating schema.rb running rake db:schema:dump, but it
did not help. I’m running Rails 2.1.1 with postgres 8.3.1.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Keith

It’s definitely that default which is wrong. Probably something bust
with the schema dumper.
