|0000784||Core Inform||Actions||public||2011-10-30 20:52||2014-05-07 07:33|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6L02|
|Summary||0000784: "doing something other than Xing the Y" is handled wrong|
|Description||In the sample code, nearly every action should be ruled out. At least, that would be the natural reading.|
Instead, rule 1 is compiled as "instead of doing anything-other-than-touching to the pear". So the pear cannot be dropped, but the apple and banana can both be dropped.
Similarly, rule 2 blocks doing anything-other-than-putting-it-on to (apple, pillar). So it successfully blocks "put apple in pillar", but nothing involving the banana or any other object in the room.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
The Kitchen is a room. The player carries the apple. The player carries the pear. The player carries the banana. The small pillar is a fixed in place supporter in the Kitchen. Instead of doing something other than touching the pear: say "Rule 1 fires." Instead of doing something other than putting the apple on the pillar: say "Rule 2 fires."
You can see a small pillar here.
>put banana on pillar
You put the banana on the small pillar.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves|
I tend to agree with this, and I've changed the behaviour of "doing something other than". In particular, Inform now distinguishes between
doing something other than touching the pear
doing something other than touching to the pear
and this makes for a much more natural reading of the text.
