Well, the formula above works out to be (6/19) + .5 = .815... I don't think casting integers does any rounding, but I could be wrong, so what is happening is the decimal result is being dropped, and only the integers on the left of the . are being used for the value of msgnum(which in this case there are no integers, so the value returned is zero). +------------------------------------------------------------+ | Ensure that you have read the CircleMUD Mailing List FAQ: | | http://democracy.queensu.ca/~fletcher/Circle/list-faq.html | +------------------------------------------------------------+
