rails - using truncate from a the lib dir ie a module

Here is how to get the helpers into the libs area, Sometimes the helpers use/set data on the controller etc so this doesn't work.

module MyModule
  include ActionView::Helpers::TextHelper
  module_function :truncate

Here is how to get it on the console
helper.truncate(string, :length => length)
