Issue L60801

Assuming the wrong object
Submitted by: Irene Callaci     Appeared in: Library 6/8     Fixed in: Library 6/10

I'm noticing a problem with verbs that take a direct object if the direct object is missing. The problem only occurs when the player character is carrying exactly ONE item, i.e., children(player)==1. For example:


has always returned "What do you want to sit on?" But now, if the player character is carrying exactly one item (a cigarette, for example), then I get instead:

  (on the cigarette)
  That's not something you can enter.

If you replace the Adjudicate() routine in Parserm.h with the old version of it from Library 6/7, everything works as it used to.
