variable question
 
I have a var 'strike-number'
It reads the mud text correctly and sets the var correctly.
But when i try to display the var in status windiw, or just call it up with #show @strike-number command, i get '-number'

Can anyone elaborate?

And the MUD displays line: Your strike-number is: 4
Your (%w) is: (%d)
#var %1 %2

I don't think %w will do it as %w is word and you may have two words, or even word(minus)word. Try

Your (*) is: (%d)
#SH %trim(%1) %2

Alternatively, call your variable @strikeNumber

#show @{strike-number}
Or as Hpoonis says, #Trigger {Your strike-number is: (%d)} {#Var Strikenumber %1}

%x would match the non-white space, so it eliminates the need of training.
Your (%x) is: (%d)
Should work just fine

The issue isn't writing to the variable. The issue is when he is trying to access the variable,
the - creates an issue, so he needs to use {} to specify the variable name to include -. This is
a carry-over from zMUD and can be found in the zmud help files.
