What is the verb for Put? Is there list of verbs?

What is the verb Inform uses for “put [something] in [something]?”

I tried “Instead of putting the fistful of leaves in the fire, say bla bla”

I also tried “putting into.”

But the compiler does not recognize “putting” as an action.

Is there a list of verbs somewhere as Inform uses them?

The action you’re looking for is “inserting it into.”

Yes, in the actions tab of the Index page in the IDE. Here’s an article I wrote a while back on this issue: nitku.net/blog/2009/12/an-action … ther-name/

I love that comment from zarf on that blog post admitting that he just uses the source code for the Standard Rules as his dictionary. Downloading it now… XD
