clean all records

hi @ all
How can I clean all records from a table in a mysql database without
delete the table in the database? (only use a method in the model)

thanks for helping!

Take a look at destroy_all

Actually, delete_all might be a better bet in this case because it
runs without instantiating the records first.

Is this for your development environment and are you using test
fixtures? If so you can easily load test fixtures into your
development database by running "rake db:fixtures:load".

No, but I want to copy / overwrite an existing table with rake in the
same environment. Is it possible with rake? Or with an other solution?

For example: I have a table people and I want to copy this table into
the guests table.
