( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Before I fell to the FedEx metaphor, I was thinking about how the game AI for every NPC would be handling the stack of states an NPC would be in. The different states would have different priorities, for example, an attack threatens the life of the NPC and thus must be reacted to before opening the door for the player. I toyed around with some perlish syntax then, mostly like grepping through the "history of events" for that NPC, to simulate memories for that NPC.

If this memory concept is used (which I'm not really sure of), then some language extension that makes searching through the memories easy would be quite necessary, as almost all AI code will be actions based on memory and the current game situation. In that case, either a specialized object (for Python or Java) or some mutation of Perl (m// matches on NPC memory instead of STDIN) could make sense to ease the use of the scripting stuff.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
