Oh well. > My memory's not what it used to be. :-) As long as you don't forget to keep CircleMUD coming along, I, at least, don't care if you forget what main() does. <grin> Anyway, on this same note, I'm curious why this was removed? Was it a matter of MUD admins not wanting it? Just something that got blown away through the changes? Although you were wrong (erm, not to rub it in) with your statemnt about it being used for daggers, I kind of think it would be a good idea to have a little "can_backstab" thing so MUD implementors can add types of weapons with backstab-ability and not have to go on a witchhunt for the code. Just a thought. Better yet, I'll probably just change it to ITEM_CAN_BACKSTAB because I've got things of type pierce I don't want people to backstab with (lances, etc.) -- Perhaps it should be changed in stock Circle? Dunno.
