Routing Fixnum


If I have the following route defined:

map.connect ‘/foo/bar/:baz’,
:requirements => {:baz => /^\d+$/}

then if someone asks for /foo/bar/3 I noticed that :baz == “3” instead
of :baz == 3. I.E. it is a string not a number. (At least it does this
in the functional testing of the routing). This seems reasonable because
I have not told it to expect a number but it would be nice if there was
a way I could specify that. Didn’t see anything in the documentation.

Anything I missed or should I just params[:baz].to_i in my controller?
