helper :all does not include Modules

Greetings list,

I was wondering if any of you are unable to call "helper" methods in
your controllers even though application.rb has a call to
"helper :all"?

My views are able to call the methods but my controllers are unable to
call them unless I "include ModuleHelper" in the controller but I was
under the impression that helper :all is supposed to take care of the

My development environment is
Rails 2.1.0

application.rb snippet::

The helper method is for including modules (or controller methods)
into views. It's not supposed to do anything to controllers.


Thanks for the info,
