|0000434||Core Inform||Kinds and type checking||public||2010-11-21 19:05||2014-05-07 07:33|
|Platform||x86||OS||Mac OS X||OS Version||10.5|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6L02|
|Summary||0000434: Saying a kind "can be closed or open" makes "open" work strangely|
|Description||If you declare a kind of supporter, then all open containers are closed. I've tested this with two containers and two rooms, so apparently it's system-wide. I've also rephrased the definition of the bowl by breaking up the declarations into separate declarations, and that makes no difference.|
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
A cardboard box is a kind of supporter. A cardboard box can be closed or open. A cardboard box can be openable. Sanitarium is a room. The bowl is a transparent open container in Sanitarium. The burger is in the bowl.
|Additional Information||Here is the output:|
An Interactive Fiction
Release 1 / Serial number 101121 / Inform 7 build 6F95 (I6/v6.31 lib 6/12N) SD
You can see a bowl (closed) (in which is a burger) here.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves|
The "showme" command refers to the box as a transparent closed container but later says it's open. If you make the bowl openable and then try to open it, you're told that it's already open.
The culprit seems to be the order of the terms when you say the box can be "closed or open". If you change it to "open or closed" (matching the Standard Rules definitions), things seem to work correctly.
|Fixed at last.|
