Hi Craig.
Wouldn't "rake db:fixtures:load FIXTURES=rights" give you the same
result (with less typing)?

Best.

table and updating it.

Sorry gentlemen. I should be more precise in asking my questions. This
is very useful information. However, what I meant to ask is how do I
populate a class instance from the fixture data in Rails console without
going to the database. Is there a more direct way of doing that?
Thanks.
