Routers and dot in string parameter


#1

map.page ‘:sex/:word’, :controller => ‘say’,
:requirements => { : sex =>/girl|boy/ }

So this works fine:

http://mypage.com/say/boy/hello

also this:

http://mypage.com/say/girl/hello%20world

but this:

http://mypage.com/say/girl/hello.world

returns: Error 404 The page you were looking for doesn’t exist.

How can I fix this?

I had a route like this once where :code was a series of numbers and
periods. The below made it work.

 r.foo_detail '/foo/:code/:title/detail',
                     :action => 'detail',
                     :requirements => { :code => %r([\d.]+) }
