Overriding number_to_human (Rails 3.0.5)

I encountered a problem today, in that the number_to_human helper has a
defect where it spits out an error when passed any number bigger than 0
and
less than 1.

eg number_to_human(0.2) gives “nil can’t be coerced into fixnum”

So, I found this patch:

Now to apply it, I had to create a file: lib/number_helper_overrides and
put the override code in there:

module ActionView
module Helpers
module NumberHelper
def number_to_human(number, options = {})
#the code in here bla bla
end
end
end
end

then in environment.rb I put:

require “number_helper_overrides”

Is this the proper way to override in rails 3?

If so, then should I really need to put the “require” statement into the
environment.rb file?
I already have the autoload path set to load file from the lib
directory?

thanks,

Lee

anyone?

Have you tried putting it in config/initializers/? You won’t need the
require statement if you put it there.
