Looks like a bug, I think that should actually be:
if ((real_num = real_room(number)) == NOWHERE) {

IE it looks like it's just a typo/bug.


PS my email address has changed the patch mentions me as having an email
of chris at, but I've moved on in 2 years,
thought I'd sign up again, been meaning to fiddle with the source I've
got lurking 8)  So I'm now only 3 bpl's and a version of dg_scripts
behind, oh and an oasis version 8)
