Interesting, Anthony :) Here goes a suggestion, though. Turn the "int mound" from a number between 1-10, and 0 for off to just TRUE or FALSE. Then, take the number of items passed, and 1-10 are the same, and >10 can use #10, too. Another suggestion, have a '%' just append an 's' to the word it's prefixed on. That way, we can shorten the amount of time needed to enpluralize a string (and also save a tiny, tiny, tiny bit (literally) of hard drive space) by instead of typing things like: # dead @cat@cats@ @is@are lying here, rotting away... We can type something as short as: # dead %cat @is@are@ lying here, rotting away... Which is much quicker, and, possably, get as anal as making another character to convert singuluar fill-words (ie., "is"->"are") by using a structure with, "<word>, <plural form>". This could make the code overall more flexible. But, change "#", if I'm not mistaken, you can't start a sentence with it. ____ ___ ___ ____ ___ | __| _ | _ ) __ ) __| Daniel Koepke aka: Trice Sabre |__ | | _ ' _ ' _| Crimson Realms (mud.california.com 1234) |____|_|_|___)| \_\___| Email for info on the Diku NiMUD server!
