third party helper module (newbie)

Hello everybody,

I found a cool helper for generating dependant select controls by Dimitrij Denissenko, which I don't quite know how to install it. The structure of the helper is as follows:

module ActionView   module Helpers     module RelatedSelectFormOptionsHelper ...     end end end

So, I tried to stick it in my app/helpers and do "helper :related_select_form_options" in a controller, which produces exactly this: "app/helpers/related_select_form_options_helper.rb to define RelatedSelectFormOptionsHelper"

If I put the thing into the site helpers directory, I get "couldn't find related_select_form_options_helper.rb".

So, I don't quite know how to proceed from here. What's the best way to do it?

Solved. Hope it will help somebody. Basically, after some extensive research I found out that the way to do it is to put the code in a file and then “require” it from environment.rb. Found the answer here: in the comments section. Kudos to evansj who wrote the comment.
