    each one being some text. The default value of each is "nothing", meaning the extension is to perform the appropriate action depending on which one, if any, of the use options provided by the extension are in effect.

    The messages can't go fore, can't go starboard, can't go aft and can't go port support the extension Shipboard Directions, which this extension automatically includes.

    The extension also creates three global text variables, with their default values being

        no way out - "You can't see a way out of here."
        only one exit - "The only visible exit is"
        multiple exits - "The visible exits are"

    used in the exit lister.
