Summary0000755: Appendix B's description of MoveWord() implies incorrect parameter type
DescriptionAppendix B states (using square brackets to denote mono-spaced text):

        [MoveWord(at1, b2, at2)] copies word at2 from parse buffer b2 – which doesn’t need to be [buffer] – to word at1 in parse.

I believe that "[buffer]" should be "[parse]", like this:

        [MoveWord(at1, b2, at2)] copies word at2 from parse buffer b2 – which doesn’t need to be [parse] – to word at1 in parse.

The "buffer" arrays are indeed ZSCII-based as the earlier text describes, but this function works on the "parse" arrays, which are struct-based.
TagsNo tags attached.

I also cannot see anywhere where MoveWord() is actually used, either in Appendix B, Appendix A, or a compiled game. Perhaps some weird I7 Topic's generated code needs it?

Confirmed. MoveWord does seem to be dead code.

I concur. MoveWord isn't used, and since it does something inherently unfortunate, I've removed it altogether.
