|0000328||Core Inform||Equations, units, arithmetic||public||2010-10-09 19:23||2010-10-28 00:31|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6F95|
|Summary||0000328: Pluralization of 0 uses singular instead of plural.|
|Description||The game reports "This past year, 0 person starved." instead of "This past year, 0 people starved."|
I presume this behavior is due to the Plurality extension, but I have not investigated to verify that hypothesis.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
"Bug Report 2010Oct09B" by Jim Lai A kingdom is a kind of room. Population is a kind of value. 1 person (singular) specifies a population. 3 people (plural) specifies a population. A kingdom has population. Starvation has a population. Toronto is a kingdom. "O Hammurabi, I beg to report you:[line break]This past year, [population of starvation] starved." When play begins: now the population of starvation is 0 people.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves|
This is nothing to do with Plurality, in fact, but is because a value of 0 is printed using the "natural" unit; for instance, a length of zero will be printed as "0m" rather than "0nm" even though both are true. This rule was being applied even when the natural unit was a singular usage only, as in this case; removing that possibility fixed the bug.
I look forward to "Hammurabi Takes Toronto", an epic which will put Gilgamesh to shame.
