The " command is a short form of the say command.

Usage

Syntax: "<message>

Says <message> out loud to everyone in your current location (usually a room).

Example

> "Where is the movie theater?
You say, "Where is the movie theater?"

Note that the closing double quote is automatically added.

Server Differences

On PennMUSH, " behaves like say even when the line begins with a softcode function:

> "add(1,1) add(2,2)
You say, "2 add(2,2)"
> say add(1,1) add(2,2)
You say, "2 add(2,2)"

On TinyMUX and TinyMUSH, " behaves like say except that lines starting with softcode functions requires square brackets:

> "add(1,1) add(2,2)
You say, "add(1,1) add(2,2)"
> say add(1,1) add(2,2)
You say, "2 add(2,2)"

%-subsitutions are performed across all three regardless of square brackets.
