Items.destroy doesn't work


#1

why doesn’t this work
items.destroy if items = find(:all, :conditions => …)

right now i have this that works, but it seems ugly and inefficient.

if items = find(:all, :conditions => …)
items.each do |item|
item.destroy
end
end

there must be a better way


#2

How about

Item.destroy_all(conditions)

Which will call the destroy callback methods (slow if you are
destroying many records).

If you don’t care about callbacks, use delete_all instead.
