0639 print "; Welcome to the ~Infix~ debugger (1/990428), which makes the
0640 following verbs available:^^
0641 ~; ~: evaluates this Inform expression: e.g.
0642 ~; location~ will print the value of the variable ~location~,
0643 ~; 3*5+1~ will print 16, ~; children(old cloth bag)~ will tell you
0644 how many items are in it. (You can name objects either by their
0645 names inside the source code, such as ~n_obj~, or by typing the
0646 names by which the game's parser would normally know them, such
0647 as ~north wall~: the effect is the same.)^
0648 Any expression is allowed except that you can't use double-quoted
0649 strings of text: but you can send messages, call routines or
0650 assign values to variables, properties and array entries.
0651 ^ ~; score++~ is one way to get on in the world.
0652 ^ ~; deadflag = true~ is one way to get out of it.
0653 ^ ~; StopDaemon(nasty little dwarf)~ will keep you from being pestered.^
0654 Conditions like ~; score>20~ are also allowed and print
0655 either 1 (if true) or 0 (if false).^^";
0656 print "~;examine ~ or ~;x ~ gives full details
0657 of whatever it is. For instance, ~;x ##Take~ describes the Take
0658 action; ~;x Class~ the class Class; ~;x 'drop'~ the dictionary
0659 word ~drop~ and so on for numbers, routines, arrays and of course
0660 objects. ~;xo~ examines something as an object, so for instance
0661 ~;x location~ tells you about the variable ~location~, but ~;xo
0662 location~ tells you what object it refers to.^^";
0663 print "~;give~, ~;remove~ and ~;move~ work like the corresponding
0664 Inform statements.^^";
0665 print "~;<~ causes an action: for instance, ~;< Eat cheese~.^^";
0666 print "~;watch~ or ~;w~ can set a watch on various activities:
0667 type just ~;w~ for details.^^";
0668 print "~;inventory~ or ~;i~ describes the contents of this story file.^";
