Here’s the scenario:
>GET CANDLE You get the candle. >X IT It's made of wax. >GIVE IT TO SANTA You're not carrying any it. >DROP IT You drop the candle.
Why is it that ‘it’ is understood when using verb/noun input, but not when using multi-word input? By adding some debugging code, I can see that noun1 correctly converts ‘it’ to the previously used noun1 (i.e. ‘candle’) in the EXAMINE and DROP commands, but it is left as ‘it’ in the GIVE command.
