This program prints a series of commands that can be used to recreate objects.
[object = 1 | a | c | e | f | i | l]
- The name or dbref of the object to archive.
- Archive only the named object.
- Archive all, regardless of owner. (wizards only).
- Don't archive contents.
- Archive objects that are not in this room's environment.
- Don't archive floater child rooms unless linked to.
- Include globally registered objects.
- Don't follow links or drop-tos in archiving.
The @archive command examines the object and its contents and prints out a
series of commands that could be used to create the object from scratch.
These commands can be saved in a file and later used to recreate the
object simply by uploading the file to the server.
If no parameters are specified, @archive prints out a short help file.
You may specify only one parameter in addition to the object.
If you are using @archive to create a file of executable commands you should:
- Make sure the word wrap is turned off in your client.
- Begin logging the output
- Edit the log file to remove:
- Anything from the beginning of the file up to, and including,
the '[Begin Dump]' line
- Any 'X lines displayed' lines.
- Anythng from, and including,
the '[End Dump]' line to the end of the file.
The @archive command reads all properties on the object and its contents
that the character that issues the command has permission to read.
None of the issuing character's properties are read.
Is this true? I used @archive to discover that the two @skill
properties were still on my character. I couldn't examine them normally,
or change them but @archive reported them
When using @archive on an environment room
(or any object that may contain many other objects)
all of the contained objects will be included in the
This is a convenient way to archive a group of rooms that are based on a
specific environment room.
When the archive is sent to the server to re-create the objects(s),
it registers the new object(s) in the character properties of the issuing
character as <tmp/thing1>.
This registration is not removed at the end of the archive command list.
(See: Registration for more information.)
- A '[Begin Dump]' line
- The command list
- A '[End Dump]' line
- If the character issuing the @archive command does not have
control of the object.
