Getting just the ordinal on Rails 3.

The ordinal method isn’t publicly available in Rails 3 so you can do something like this:

ordinal(1).last(2) #=> "st"

ordinal(20).last(2) #=> "th"

Correction: Getting just the ordinal on Rails 3.

The ordinal method isn’t publicly available in Rails 3 so you can do something like this:

ordinalize(1).last(2) #=> "st"

ordinalize(20).last(2) #=> "th"
