  • Section 2 - Specifications

    The specification of the quizzing it about action is "This action responds to commands like ASK FRED ABOUT BOAT, where BOAT is a thing defined in the game, rather than a topic."

    The specification of the informing it about action is "This action responds to commands like TELL FRED ABOUT BOAT, where BOAT is a thing defined in the game, rather than a topic."

    The specification of the requesting it for action is "This action effectively replaces the library's asking it for action. Like asking it for it matches ASK BOB FOR SOMETHING, but unlike asking it for it makes no assumptions that this is equivalent to BOB, GIVE ME SOMETHING. Instead it can match any object known to the player, and the response can be anything we care to define."

    The specification of the imploring it for action is "This action provides handling for ASK SOMEONE ABOUT SOMETHING where SOMETHING is a topic rather than a thing, e.g. ASK BILL FOR ADVICE."
