|0000552||Documentation, Examples, and Web Site||Writing with Inform||public||2011-02-11 15:09||2014-05-07 07:38|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6L02|
|Summary||0000552: Chapter 4.13 (Duplicates) seems to be out of date|
|Description||A couple of statements in chapter 4.13 seem to be incorrect. |
First: "(The player has to type numbers as words when counting things here: so TAKE SIX TRIANGLES makes sense to Inform but TAKE 6 TRIANGLES doesn't, largely for traditional reasons.)" Having attempted TAKE 6 TRIANGLES in the game below, it seems to work fine now.
Second: "If there are very many items in the same place, commands like TAKE ALL and DROP ALL may mysteriously not quite deal with all of them - this is because the parser, the run-time program which deciphers typed commands, has only limited memory to hold the possibilities. It can be raised with a use option like so:
Use maximum things understood at once of 200."
When I uncomment "Use maximum things understood at once of 200." from the source below, I get the following error:
"Problem. You wrote 'Use maximum things understood at once of 200' : but that isn't a 'Use' option known to me, and needs to be one of the ones listed in the documentation."
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
"Polygons" A shape is a kind of thing. A triangle is a kind of shape. The Geometry Lab is a room. In the Lab are 75 triangles. [Use maximum things understood at once of 200. ]
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Confirmed. The limit-raising line should read
- - - -
Use maximum things understood at once of at least 200.
