RangeError (bignum too big to convert into `long'


I have written the following function in RoR for my website . The
function on execution gives an error for the Rmagick crop method , the
error is wriiten after the function . I am using the same
function(except for the change in name, rest everything is same) for
cropping from left , right and bottom and they are working fine.
All the left , right , top and bottomcrop functions are given the same
arguments but in case of topcrop these give an error and rest they
work fine .


def topcrop(path,cropfile,percentcrop)
path = path.chomp
cropfile = cropfile.chomp
percentcrop = (100-percentcrop.to_i)/100.0
picwidth = 640 ; #width of the pic (in pixels)
picheight = 480; #height of the pic (pixels)
widthchanged = (picwidthpercentcrop) #new width (based on the
percentage specified by the user)
heightchanged = (picheight
percentcrop) #new height (based on the
percentage of cropping specified by the user)
img = Magick::Image.read(path).first #reads the image specfied by the
user path
img = img.scale(640,480) #scales image to 640x480
img.write"/home/anmol/image.jpg" #scales image to 640x480
