RedCloth in Rails documentation bug


It is trivial to get RedCloth to work in irb or script/console. But
when I try to put
code into a rails view or controller it complains that it doesn’t know
what ‘’
is or how to ‘require “redcloth”’. How do you tell rails to use
RedCloth? Do you put
something in config/environment.rb ? Blah, blah, blah …

Feel free to secretly feel superior to me. Feel free to label me
