Converting Number into Integer in ruby

I am working with a legacy oracle database. The
primary key is not defined as an integer but as a number.
This results in a url with an id as a number, such as 1234.0 instead
of 1234. It works fine, but I would prefer 1234 to be displayed in
the url.

The thing used for urls etc. is the to_param method, you may have more
luck doing your coercing there.
