I understand the difference between render and redirect (at least I
think I do...)
But there still seems to be some confusion in my mind between
render :action => :some_action
render :action => "some_action"
It would seem the second form (with the action target in quotes) just
However, the first form using the colon fomat seems to call the action
method -- a direct contradiction of the explanation given in the
Pragmatic Programmer's Agile Web Development book (page 428).
If somebody has some explanation of how these two formats differ, I
sure would appreciate a response.
