Unread post Mombot find and getnear
I'm having a time getting these two mombot commands to work as I think they are supposed to. Can anyone give me a couple of syntax examples, please?

Thanks,
Deign

There is a help file for each command. This is from those files supplied with mom.

FIND - Search TWX-DBase for Fighter/Port data

find [f/nf/fp/p/de/ufde] [type] {sector} [port type]

- [type] = [de]ad-end or
[f]igged or
[nf] no-fig or
[fp] figged port or
[p]ort or
[ufde] un-figged dead end
- {sector} sector number that you need finder data on,
default is current sector
- [port type] port type (s)ell , (b)uy, or (x) either

GETNEAR - Locates Nearest Cashing Ports.

- getnear {product amount}

{product amount} - Script defaults to value stored in game
CFG file as $PORT_MAX, however you can
specify a different amount. Only need to
update CIM upon 1st use, then simply get
port-reports manually to remove recently
bought down Ports.

Reads MOMBOT NEGO File and includes last known MCIC value
for specific port.

CBYnot posted a list of most command help here:

viewtopic.php?f=15&t=34704

While it's all on the bot it is REALLY nice to look through that one.

Also each bot function outside of the core is a 'add in'. So depending on what you have you might have different commands compared to that list.

Also, sometimes when you first do
>? COMMAND

it will say "No help file found"; it often requires the command run once to generate the help file.
So run
>? command
>stopall

The stopall will stop the commands running, nothing worse than setting off a script just to read the help file :)

Enjoy :)

Thank you, but I've read the help files. I am trying to use it like this, expecting to get a figged SSS port, but that doesn't work (anonymized):

'bot find fp sss

Message sent on sub-space channel 6789.

Command [TL=00:00:00]:[111] (?=Help)? :

S: - Nearest Figged XXX port(s) to 111: 456 (2 hops), 789 (3 hops), and
S: 987 (4 hops)
S:
S: Note: 111LA, has a XXX port that's figged.

Hey Deign , is your botname bot ? quite unusual name .. do you have any
other problems when calling scripts with that name ? or get a lot of issues
with not a valid command type of things going on ?

Just asking ....

No, bot name is actually 'dgn' but I tried to edit out all the game specific stuff in the post. That example was copied out of a live game. Didn't want to display my home sector to the world just yet.
