master / author_file

Edit on Github

NAME

author_file - determine the author for a given object

SYNOPSIS

string author_file (string file);

DESCRIPTION

This  function  must  exist  in the master object.  It is called by the
author statistic functions in the driver to  determine  what  author  a
given  object should be associated with.  This is totally arbitrary and
up to the mudlib designers wishes.  It should be noted that the  author
that  the  object  is  assigned to will receive "credit" for all of the
objects behavior (errors, heart_beats, worth, etc).

At startup the driver  will  ask  for  the  master  author  by  calling
author_file(__MASTER_FILE__).
