I don’t know that system, but from the code it looks like @user.roles is
a collection so you cannot simply print its value

I am using the ACL System that is described on the Rails wiki and I have
a quick question. I want to set the “role” as a session variable so
that I can display certain navigation schemes and I was doing it like
this:

@session[:user][:role] = @user.roles

When I print out this variable I get:

#Role:0x3262d80

How can I turn this into a readable value? I tried .to_i because I
think it is an integer but that method isn’t valid.

Thanks.
