Period. (Or "Full Stop" If You Prefer.)

Plugging away on learning Quest. Very glad I finally figured out prepositions. It would be a poor game indeed that forced the Player to type "look object" or "look at object" when his natural inclination is to "look under," "look in," "look through," or "look out of."

There is one thing. Not a big deal, but it might annoy some players. Quest seems unable to handle a period at the end of a sentence. "Examine dresser" gets the desired response, but "Examine dresser." gets "I can't see that."

Any way around that very small glitch??

I think you'd have to either add it to the pattern for every command; or enable multiple command mode (which splits the input string on dots and treats each part as a separate command)

OK, thanks.
