Code Samples

Following example shows basic to_monster operations.

string first, second, third;

first = "goth giant";
second = "beefy bat";
third = "flock of sta";

print(first+" gives "+to_monster(first)+".", "blue");
print(second+" gives "+to_monster(second)+".", "blue");
print(third+" gives "+to_monster(third)+".", "blue");

It gives the following output.

goth giant gives Goth Giant.
beefy bat gives beefy bodyguard bat.
flock of sta gives Flock of Stab-Bats.


Since direct casting with $monster[ ] is already case-insensitive and accepts partial matches, this function is only useful for converting a string variable to a monster.
