If you run a query such as the following:
Group.find(:select => ‘group.name, COUNT(members) as
member_count’, :joins => :members, :group => ‘group’)
All of the sql calculations (e.g. member_count) are typecast as
strings. Is there a way to specify how the results will be typcast?
p.s. I realize there are other ways to accomplish the example, but
this is a simplified version of the type of query I need to run taking
advantage of the :select option for the ActiveRecord Find method.
