§14.12. The RESPONSES testing command

In practice we can't change these responses unless we know what they're called. One way to find out is just to read through the extensions we're using, but that's a laborious process. A more practical answer is to type:


which replies by listing the sets of responses currently available; for example, it says that RESPONSES 1 is the set of responses for the Standard Rules. We can then type exactly that:

Standard Rules:
    block vaguely going rule response (A): "You'll have to say which compass direction to go in."
    print the final prompt rule response (A): "> [run paragraph on]"

and so on. This lists all of the responses, rule by rule, along with their current texts.
