ActiveResource : clone fails when the resource has Fixnum or boolean attributes

Reported by Pierre Lancien | December 19th, 2010 @ 05:36 PM

In ActiveResource::Base, the clone method raises an error whenever an attribute of the cloned resource is not cloneable.

  class Person < ActiveResource::Base = "http://37s.sunrise.i:3000"

  matz = => 'Matz', :age => 31)

will raise :

   TypeError: can't clone Fixnum

It's the same with boolean attributes.

    Here is the patch with the test.
    Since it's my first submission, I'm not sure of doing things properly... but I'm here to learn!

    • Tag set to rails 2.3.11, activeresource, patch

    This fixes a problem I had when I tried upgrading from 2.3.10 to 2.3.11 with my app. Too bad this wasn't merged before 2.3.11 was released. I've attached an updated patch file.

    can't clone Fixnum

    Wait... I thought it fixed my problem... but it doesn't ... still the patch file works for 2.3.11
