Summary0000744: Does the player mean rules don't run for actions applying to a topic
DescriptionThe does the player mean rulebook is considered by the game only when the topic understood is also an object in scope.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Lab is a room.

The Book of Lies is in Lab. The Book of Truth is in Lab.
Does the player mean consulting the Book of Lies about: it is very unlikely.
Does the player mean consulting the Book of Truth about: it is very likely.

Test me with "consult book about me / consult book about foo"
Additional InformationTopics don't pass the condition at line 53 of the ChooseObjects routine in B/parst ยง62:

if (line_ttype-->pcount == ELEMENTARY_TT) {

Changing the line to
if (line_ttype-->pcount == ELEMENTARY_TT or TOPIC_TOKEN) {
may be a possible fix.
TagsNo tags attached.
Effect(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves

The suggested fix yields some improvement:

- - - -
>test me

>[1] consult book about me
(the Book of Truth about)
You discover nothing of interest in the Book of Truth.

>[2] consult book about foo
Which do you mean, the Book of Lies or the Book of Truth?

The suggested fix was a placebo; line_ttype-->pcount can't be TOPIC_TOKEN; that's line_ttype-->pdata. But I've found a fix anyway.
