I just pushed an extension called Tabulate to the Friends of I7 repo. It adds a not-for-release ‘tabulate’ command that lets you request a dump of table contents during play (via the
showme the contents of phrase.)
"Table of Stats" Include Tabulate by Zed Lopez. Lab is a room. Table of Stats name x y "foo" 1 2 "bar" 5 9 Test me with "tabulate table of stats / tabulate stats".
>test me (Testing.) > tabulate table of stats Table of Stats (row 1) | foo | 1 | 2 | (row 2) | bar | 5 | 9 | > tabulate stats Table of Stats (row 1) | foo | 1 | 2 | (row 2) | bar | 5 | 9 |
One night I had remembered there was some provision to do this, and had conflated it with something the ‘showme’ command could do, kind of like the poster of Seeing the contents of a table here. Needing to put the phrase in your code and re-compile when you want the output is a pain, so ta-da, now there really is a command to do it.
