- name is the monster name to convert
- id is KoL's id number for a monster
Returns the specified monster name as a monster, or converts KoL's monster id into its monster value.
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.
