I found an odd error when using Modified Exit and wonder if it is a more general Inform bug.

Using the test text:

Code:
Include Modified Exit by Emily Short.

The Empty Lot is a room.

The platform is an enterable supporter in the Empty Lot.

The describe room stood up into rule does nothing when the container exited from is the platform.

Test me with "enter platform/exit platform/rules/actions/enter platform/exit platform".


You get (with some interesting bits bolded):

Quote:
Empty Lot
You can see a platform here.

>test me
(Testing.)

>[1] enter platform
You get onto the platform.

>[2] exit platform
You get off the platform.

Variable unavailable for this action, activity or rulebook: internal ID number 20009/0
Empty Lot
You can see a platform here.


and from the rules output:

Quote:
[Rule "standard report getting off rule" applies.]
You get off the platform.

[Rule "new describe room stood up into rule" applies.]
Variable unavailable for this action, activity or rulebook: internal ID number 20009/0
[Rule "describe room stood up into rule" applies.]

[Rule "determine visibility ceiling rule" applies.]
[Rule "investigate player's awareness before action rule" applies.]
[Rule "player aware of his own actions rule" applies.]
[Rule "check stage rule" applies.]
[Rule "carry out stage rule" applies.]
[Rule "declare everything unmentioned rule" applies.]
[Rule "room description heading rule" applies.]
Empty Lot


etc.

Now the backstory is that Modified Exit lists the new describe room gone into rule instead of the describe room gone into rule in the report getting off rules. But then the describe room stood up into rule seemingly ought not to be checked at all, and so shouldn't produce the error message.
