  • Chapter - The null figure

    [Inform users are not allowed to set a figure value of "nothing"--if we leave a figure unspecified, the cover art (or the built-in generic cover art) will print instead. Here, we set up a fake figure to stand in for "nothing".]

    Figure of Null is the file of cover art. [The file of cover art is used for the declaration because Inform will ensure that an image is provided. In practice, we simply don't print the image if its resource ID corresponds to Figure of Null]
