A Note about hug-globals ~ Austin
Date: 2001-11-04 04:00 PM
There's one minor point overlooked in the discussion of the
hug-globals. You are allowed to give a hug-global several names, each
separated by semicolons (just as you may give several names to any exit
or action) -- for example:
@action bubble;pop = me
@link bubble = $sq-action.muf
will then allow you to do both actions:
You bubble Morticon!
You pop Morticon!
Similarly, you can use the multiple, semicolon-separated names
for the farhug actions as well:
@action farcuddle;farlemur = me
@link farcudde = $farhug.muf
and then you can do both actions:
You cuddle Morticon, afar!
You lemur Morticon, afar!
This lets you cut down the number of actions you hold -- a single
object can do multiple things. And if you read the documentation you can
find much more elaborate things to do with the hug actions, including to
tie them in to more complicated messages than just 'You acton Steve!' and
the like. To get the documentation, type:
(If you were curious -- the sq-action is because it's FurToonian
head squirrel wizard Squirrelly's Action program.)
