assert_recognizes ignores extras parameter

Reported by Jarl Friis | February 21st, 2010 @ 12:50 PM


I am using the extras hash parameter in assert_recognizes. The documentation shows
assert_recognizes(expected_options, path, extras={}, message=nil)

I have something similar to the documentation:

assert_recognizes {:controller => 'items', :action => 'list', :id => '1',
                   :view => 'print'}, 'items/list/1', { :view => "print" }

this works fine, the test passes, however it passes unconditionally. If I write like this

assert_recognizes {:controller => 'items', :action => 'list', :id => '1',
                   :view => 'BULLSHIT'}, 'items/list/1', { :view => "print" }

The test also passes, which worries me a lot, I would expect it to fail.

To me it looks like a bug in assert_recognizes, it ignores the additional 'view' option value in the extras hash parameter.
