Overriding save_with_validation and alias_method_chain error

So i'm trying to override save_with_validation in activerecord validations.rb and i'm running in to problems with alias_chain method.

module ActiveRecord   module Validations     def save_with_validation(perform_validation = true)       if perform_validation && valid? || !perform_validation         save_without_validation       else         false       end     end   end

  Base.class_eval do     include Validations   end end

Error. (loop)

Whats happening is that my save_with_validation is called when i call .save then because of the alias chain method its called the save_with_validation in validation.rb as save_without_validation.

So I found dirty.rb is also alias_method_chain ing save so I tried this

Base.class_eval do     include Validations     include Dirty end

think this would re-alias those methods and it did something where my error is now different:

SystemStackError: stack level too deep   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/abstract/schema_definitions.rb:43:in `number?'   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/dirty.rb:154:in `field_changed?'   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/dirty.rb:132:in `write_attribute_without_dirty'   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/dirty.rb:139:in `write_attribute'   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/attribute_methods.rb:211:in `bln='   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/base.rb:2740:in `send'   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/base.rb:2740:in `attributes='   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/base.rb:2736:in `each'   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/base.rb:2736:in `attributes='   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/base.rb:2434:in `initialize'   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/base.rb:721:in `new'   from /Users/Kevin/Desktop/light/vendor/rails/activerecord/lib/active_record/base.rb:721:in `create'   from (irb):1

what i want to do is grab the data passed in from save like this object.save(:test) I want to grab that :test my code works when I put it right in the rails files but not in plugin as i have to override stuff.

can anyone help?
