Facebook API SDK revoke access

How can I allow a user to revoke access to my application using their API service, SDK. http://developers.facebook.com/docs/sdks/

Looking at the documentation I can't find anything about revoking the access.

in the graph API for the user object you can issue an HTTP DELETE request to /PROFILE_ID/permissions to revoke authorization for an app.

from the official documentation (developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/api/user/):

You can de-authorize an application or revoke a specific extended permissions on behalf of a user by issuing an HTTP DELETE request to PROFILE_ID/permissions with a user access_token for that app.

Parameter Description Type Required permission The permission you wish to revoke. If you don't specify a permission then this will de-authorize the application completely. string no You get the following result.

Description Type True if the delete succeeded and error otherwise. boolean


For the FB JavaScript SDK:

FB.api('/me/permissions', 'delete', function(response) {
    console.log(response); // true
});

For anyone who would find this helpful, I was losing sleep and wrecking my brain for days trying to get this to work;

FB.api('/me/permissions', 'DELETE', function(response) {
    if (response == true) {
        window.top.location = 'logout-facebook.php';
    } else {
        alert('Error revoking app');
    }
});

I finally got this to work when I observed that the "response" being returned was not a boolean but a JSON object.

The JSON object being returned was either;

{
    success: "true"
}

OR

{
    success: "false"
}

Following that, the correct code was;

FB.api('/me/permissions', 'DELETE', function(response) {
    if (response.success == true) {
        window.top.location = 'logout-facebook.php';
    } else {
        alert('Error revoking app');
    }
});   

Hope this helps someone!

Ruby on Rails: How do you explicitly define plural names and singular names in Rails?

For example, I'm using "Bonus" as my model, so I'd expect "bonuses" to be the plural form and "bonus" to be the singular form.
