Contents is a property of an object. Only things, players, and rooms may have contents.

An object with contents is called a container. The contents of a container are all those other objects that have the container as their location.

The contents of a player object are also referred to as the player's inventory.

Server Differences

To fully model the real world, one would expect that you should not be allowed to enter something you are ultimately carrying. This would create a circular locational reference with no outermost containing object.

PennMUSH attempts to prevent circular location references.

TinyMUX does not attempt to prevent circular location references.
