|0000286||Core Inform||Actions||public||2010-09-10 20:23||2010-10-28 00:30|
|Platform||PPC||OS||Mac OS X||OS Version||10.4|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6F95|
|Summary||0000286: "Praying is an action out of world applying to one topic with past participle prayed."|
|Description||The line of code in the subject won't compile, and I cannot figure out any way whatsoever of getting all three pieces of information -- out of world, one topic, past participle -- into the line. This line cannot be split into multiple parts, either. Attempts to do so create a new kind-of-action if not simply throw a Problem message about the action already existing. |
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
Church is a room. Praying is an action out of world applying to one topic with past participle prayed.
|Additional Information||Problem. You wrote 'Praying is an action out of world applying to one topic with past participle prayed' : but an action can only apply to things or to kinds of value, for instance: 'photographing is an action applying to one visible thing'.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded|
Ron Newcomb (reporter)
Erg, found one that works:
Praying is an action out of world with past participle prayed applying to one topic.
But the order appears to be very specific. If this isn't a bug, then may I ask this particular example be added to the documentation somewhere? Searching for "with past participle" would've found it straightaway.
I saw no reason why this shouldn't have worked, so Inform can now read the clauses of an action definition in any order, and the source text therefore does what it intended.
(Of course the past participle clause is redundant here, since Inform can deduce "prayed" from "praying"; in fact, past participle clauses are hardly ever needed.)
