Split textarea content into array

Hi,

I am a newbie to rails and have a problem to solve. I have textarea
which provides as input

Line1
Line2
Line3

I want this content to be split into an array using "\r\n" as the
seperators.
I tried to do the split directly on params[:content].split("\r\n") but
got an error which says called a private method of HASH.

I convert params[:content].to_s then I guess my \r\n's are lost.

How do I get this split working?

You're probably calling the method at the wrong param. Show the form
you're using.

params[:content].split("\r\n") works for me. Post more code.
