|0001098||Core Inform||Kinds and type checking||public||2013-04-06 18:57||2014-05-07 07:33|
|Platform||x86||OS||Mac OS X||OS Version||10.6|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6L02|
|Summary||0001098: Problem message about value vs. stored value could be made clearer|
|Description||The term ``stored value'' appears in problem messages like the one for the attached source text, but is only explained under a deprecation warning in WI 8.1. Perhaps it would help to add some explanatory text to the problem message, or a documentation link, or else define ``stored value'' in the main content of WI.|

Problem. You wrote 'increment the number that the location relates to by the foo of yourself', but 'number that the location relates to by the foo of yourself' seems to be an instruction to work out a value, whereas I was expecting to find a stored value there.

|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
There is a room. A person has a relation of rooms to numbers called priority. Every turn: increment the number that the location relates to by the priority of yourself.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded|
I stared at this example for a bit before I realized that the relation was a red herring! (Sorry, slow tonight...)
To decide what number is the zork: decide on 3.
Every turn: increment the zork.
|(Or. indeed, just "Every turn: increment 3." If we're talking simple examples.)|
