|0000332||Core Inform||Assertions and creations||public||2010-10-15 15:06||2010-10-28 00:31|
|Platform||x86||OS||Mac OS X||OS Version||10.6|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6F95|
|Summary||0000332: Standard Rules' definition of command prompt unnecessarily restrictive|
|Description||The Standard Rules currently define the command prompt without using the "usually" qualifier:|
The command prompt is [usually] ">".
This forces authors that want to change it to do so in a rule rather than declaratively. It would friendlier to add the "usually" in the definition so that authors can simply declare an alternative command prompt, e.g.:
The command prompt is "What do you want to do? >".
The same would likely be true of any other I7-level global variable defined in the Standard Rules (can't think of any others off the top of my head, though).
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
Test is a room. The command prompt is "What do you want to do? >".
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded|
|Adding "usually" is more of a feature request (and thus belongs on the suggestion forum), but the error message produced by this code refers to the variable as a "property" and could stand to be more helpful in general.|
|I have improved the problem message. I was tempted by the suggestion about making it only "usually" in the Standard Rules, but in the end didn't go for it, because it might lead the user to believe that the same would be true for "left hand status line" and ditto for right; whereas that is rather trickier because those are variables aliased to I6 template variables, and (I suspect) used as such by various extensions to produce fancy status lines. Maybe this is worth coming back to, but anyway, I fixed the bug.|
