Cycling too many compile/test/compile

this happens to me. Happened to others ?

`pigi@Duilio:~/if/wrk/inf6/xxx$ inform xxx.inf
Inform 6.33 for Unix (10th May 2014)
pigi@Duilio:~/if/wrk/inf6/xxx$ frotz it
u_setup.blorb_file ./it.blb
u_setup.blorb_name it.blb

Fatal error: Cannot open story file

pigi@Duilio:~/if/wrk/inf6/xxx$ `

Doing frotz foo will try to load a file named foo. You need to supply the extension too.

this is what technically happened.

I often use IT, (as in X BOX.OPEN IT) both in playing and debugging, and I ended mistreating bash(1) as a 'terp. And isn’t the first thime this happened to me…

I was telling a funny incident, in other words. (of course I use the good ol’ command line interface for nearby all computing activities…)

Oh… I thought you found a bug in Frotz.

A while ago I wrote an oops script and I’m not sure if I should let it out.
