Saves the model.
If the model is new a record gets created in the database, otherwise the existing record gets updated.
If perform_validation is true validations run. If any of them fail the action is cancelled and save returns false. If the flag is false validations are bypassed altogether. See <a href="/rails/ActiveRecord/Validations">ActiveRecord::Validations</a> for more information.
There’s a series of callbacks associated with save. If any of the before_* callbacks return false the action is cancelled and save returns false. See <a href="/rails/ActiveRecord/Callbacks">ActiveRecord::Callbacks</a> for further details.
