Fix url_for(nil) crashing

Reported by Cheah Chu Yeow | June 23rd, 2008 @ 02:02 PM


will be inferred as the nil_class_url named route - which doesn't exist 99% of the time causing an uncaught exception.

I wasn't trying to use this, just noticed the url_for helper method actually did accept a nil option while reading documentation:

when NilClass
  url = @controller.send(:url_for, nil)

I looked back at and I made a guess that the best way to respond to a nil argument is to assume you want the current url.

Patch attached.
