Receive external parameters when doing "rake migrate"?

Hi all

In my migrations I oftenly add some data to the created tables.
Sometimes it’s fix data that should be generated also when going
productive; e.g. a list of countries.

But sometimes it is data that is just for testing purposes in the
development environment. Now I’d like to send a parameter that
determines whether to create the test data when calling rake:

$ rake migrate TEST_DATA=1

Or something like that. How can this be achieved?

Thanks for help,
Joshua

ENV[“TEST_DATA”] should access it from your migration.
