Accessing Object Properties

Using 'ch' as an example which represents a character object in the MUD, accessing properties is as simple as using 'ch.level', 'ch.gold', 'ch.int', etc.

Example code may be:

if ch.level > 100 then
   send(ch,"You are a noble!")
end
if ch.int < self.int  --- remember, self is the mob running the prog.
   say("I'm smarter than you!")
else
   say("You're smarter than me!")
end

If you are dealing with an object, you may write something like

if obj.level < 100 then
   say ("I don't accept this low level junk!")
   mdo ("give " .. obj.name .. " " .. ch.name)
end

The line beginning 'mdo' is using Lua concatentation to create a command the character will execute in the MUD itself - in this case returning the object to the character that triggered the script.
