         bot_buffs[it]=have_buff;
      if (have_skill(it) && it.combat != true && !have_buff && to_effect(it) != $effect[none]) //buffs you can cast on yourself
         castable_buffs[it]=have_buff;
   }
   print("You currently have the following buffs active:", "red");
   foreach it in active_buffs
      print(""+it+"", "green");   
   print("");
   print("You could get the following buffs from a buff bot:", "red");
   foreach it in bot_buffs
      print(""+it+"", "blue");   
   print("");
   print("You could cast the following buffs on yourself:", "red");
   foreach it in castable_buffs
      print(""+it+"", "purple");

Special

If convert is an effect that cannot be given by use of a skill, and is supplied as such, or no match is found for a supplied string or int type, this function returns $effect[ none ].
