Ruby Plus #84: Drop Down Box in Rails

I was surprised when I found that Rails does not provide any helper to create simple drop down box with integer values. I came across the blog post by Brian McQuay

In this episode I will show you how to display and edit a simple drop down box that contains integer values. I have included the source code in the download. This is an opportunity for you to contribute to Rails, check out Ryan Bates screencast on contributing to Rails using GIT and create a patch to include this helper to FormHelper.
