Need some help figuring out a multi-line trigger, conditional and if set.
 
So, I'm trying to figure out how to set up a trigger and conditional set that activates when the mud returns:

The corpse of (mob name) contains:
(Weak magic) a pair of scale mail gloves
(Weak magic) the glowing zircon amulet
a roughly made wooden bucket
a rough skirt of homespun red fabric
(Moderate magic) studded leather gloves
a rough homespun shirt of dull green

<player info>

Basically, I need it to activate on the first line, then conditionally look through the items until a blank line returns, looking for Moderate magic|Potent magic|Powerful magic|Artifact magic|Magical * item *, such as

(Moderate magic) studded leather gloves

then grab the magic item, with a set of possible keywords (ring, amulet, leather, cloth, etc.) and put them in a bag, but not the (Weak magic) items.

Then it needs to end the conditional status when a blank line is returned, and reset to the primary trigger.

Any ideas?

Something like this should work:
Code:
#TR {The corpse of * contains:} {}
#COND {*} {#IF (%len(%trim(%line))>3) {
  #STATE 1
  #IF (%match(%line, "Moderate magic|Potent magic|Powerful magic|Artifact magic|Magical")) {
    $keyword=%word(%line, %numwords(%line))
    get $keyword
    put $keyword in bag
    }}} {within|param=1}

#TR {The corpse of * contains:} {}
#COND {*} {#IF (%len(%trim(%line))>3) {
  #STATE 1
  #IF (%match(%line, "Moderate magic|Potent magic|Powerful magic|Artifact magic|Magical")) {
    $keyword=%word(%line, %numwords(%line))
    get $keyword
    put $keyword in bag
    }}} {within|param=1}


This is some fantastic and concise programming. I was wondering if there is a way to have an OR or an AND function in the pattern.
For example, in line 4 :

#IF (%match(%line, "Moderate magic" OR "Potent magic" OR "Powerful magic" OR "Artifact magic")) {

and then a second set of parameters for the AND function, such as

#IF (%match(%line, "cloth" OR "ring" OR "amulet")) {

So an item has to have 1 item from the first set of parameters AND 1 item from the second set to trigger the next set of commands.

Or do I need to set up an IF command dependent, such as IF "Moderate", subsidiary IF "cloth", IF "ring", etc.?

I'm not sure if I'm explaining this well.

Right now, without knowing the scripting for proper AND/OR components, this is the type of solution I have come up with:
Code:

#IF (%len(%trim(%line))>3) {
  #STATE 1
  #IF (%match(%line, "Moderate magic")) {
    #IF (%match(%line, "ring")) {
    $keyword=%word(%line,%numwords(%line))
    get $keyword
    put $keyword in bag
    }
   
    #IF (%match(%line, "amulet")) {
    $keyword=%word(%line,%numwords(%line))
    get $keyword
    put $keyword in bag
    }}
   
   
  #IF (%match(%line, "Potent magic")) {
    #IF (%match(%line, "ring")) {
    $keyword=%word(%line,%numwords(%line))
    get $keyword
    put $keyword in bag
    }
   
    #IF (%match(%line, "amulet")) {
    $keyword=%word(%line,%numwords(%line))
    get $keyword
    put $keyword in bag
    }}}


Functional, but quite inelegant. Thanks.

Unfortunately, you have to make it redundantly long like this:

Code:
#IF ((%match(%line, "Moderate magic")) OR (%match(%line, "Potent magic")) OR (%match(%line, "Powerful magic")) OR (%match(%line, "Artifact magic"))) {stuff}


However, my earlier version:

Code:
#IF (%match(%line, "Moderate magic|Potent magic|Powerful magic|Artifact magic|Magical")) {stuff}


treated them all as an anonymous variable (the pipe symbol "|" is used to separate members of a list) and checked against that instead, essentially the same thing.
Though if that is not working try:
Code:
#IF (%match(%line, "{Moderate magic|Potent magic|Powerful magic|Artifact magic|Magical}")) {stuff}


The next part, the 'stuff' we should try to avoid redundancy in code #IF possible:

Code:
#LOCAL $keyword
#SWITCH (%match(%line, "({ring|amulet})", $keyword)) {#NOOP} {$keyword=%word(%line,%numwords(%line))}
get $keyword
put $keyword in bag
