Issue L60705

"enter" error message less than ideal
Submitted by: Andy Fischer     Appeared in: Library 6/7 or before     Fixed in: Library 6/10
Problem

Although this bug doesn't rank as too important, it always annoyed me. The 'enter' verb is actually used for a lot of actions (sitting, standing, entering), but if you use one of these on a non-enterable object, you always get the same response.

  > STAND ON WALL
  That's not something you can enter.
Solution

In English.h go to the Enter: condition in the LanguageLM procedure. Replace the line

  " not something you can enter.";

with this:

  print " not something you can ";
  if (verb_word == 'stand') "stand on.";
  else if (verb_word == 'sit') "sit on.";
  else if (verb_word == 'lie') "lie on.";
  else "enter.";
