scaffold :foo versus ScaffoldGenerator

I don't seem to have svn worked out totally, but most of the code is
available at:

Basically, without running "script/generate scaffold post" how can I
generate the scaffold for the posts model automagically? I sorta
duplicated <http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/Scaffold>. If the
answer is in that page, pardon, I didn't see it :frowning:

(I want to keep my example a bit simpler than the above web page. My
code availabe at <http://strawr.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/>, except I'm
still working out subversion syntax so not everything uploaded.)

Here's what I have:

== Posts: migrating

Got subversion squared away with "svn add *", "script/generate whatever -
c" and "svn status | grep ?". All very useful commands courtesy of the
IRC group :slight_smile:

thanks,
