Re: [CODE] Color question

Well, first of all, I would recommend checking in process_input()
in comm.c, and stripping the color codes entirely.
of course, then you would know how the colors are done.

but It would all need to start in process_input() somewhere.
make use of the STATE(t) macro and check which state they are in,
so they can't put color in their descriptions either.

I'll prolly attempt to work on something tomorrow that will do just
that. strip color codes completely from input. (then it wouldn't be too hard
to make it level restricted, or even PLR_FLAG restrictive so you can
ban certain people from using colors in input)

shrug. my $((1 << 1)/100.00) worth
