|Summary||0000152: Confusion about declaring a property in both I6 and I7|
|Description||In 6E39, declaring a property and an I6 translation leads to the appropriate ``with ...'' in the emitted I6. Ron Newcomb noted that, ``[Include (- ... -) when defining ...] was necessary in 5Z71 but apparently no longer needed in 6E39.'' The text in WI 25.20 is still somewhat misleading in that regard:|
Include (- has my_funny_attribute, -) when defining the hot air balloon.
If we need a particular I7 object or kind to end up with a particular I6 name, we can write:
The whatsit object translates into I6 as "whatsit".
The last bit reads as if it continues the discussion of I6 properties, so it's easy to mistake ``I7 object'' for ``I7 concept'' and write code like the example Ron gave (attached).
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
"test4" by Ron Newcomb A room has a number called countdown. Include (- with countdown 0, -) when defining a room. The countdown property translates into I6 as "countdown". spot is room.
|Additional Information||Based on 0000151.|

Er, but that test mirrors this test:
The previous actor is a person that varies.
Include (- Global previous_actor; -) after "Definitions.i6t".
The previous actor variable translates into I6 as "previous_actor".
...in which all three lines are still required (6E59, Windows XP). So, do properties and global variables work differently here? Without the Include line, I6 complains about undeclared variable. Without the "is a person that varies" line, I7 complains about the "translates" line not referring to a variable, or at least one not in scope. Without the translates line, it's two different variables.
|I have rewritten this section to clarify it, and explain the easy way of putting a specific property into a class definition generated by I7.|
