Drop

From AGI Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The drop command changes an inventory item's room number to zero.

Syntax

drop(itm iA); drop("item");

Remarks

The drop command is essentially a shortcut equivalent to using the put command with a new room number value of zero.

Note that there is not an equivalent 'variable' version of the drop command (i.e. no drop.v that takes a variable as an argument.)

Possible Errors

If the inventory item is not valid (the number exceeds the total number of inventory items in the OBJECT file), AGI will raise trappable error #23.

Example

Code:
drop(i30);   [ item 30's room number is now 0 
put(i30, 0); [ this also 'drops' an item
