privateis a program which sets and examines the
_privateproperty on a player or room. When this property contains the string "yes", other players will not be able to determine your location on the Muck. If the room you are in is set in this way, then you are implicitly private. Thus if personal or room privacy, or both, are set, you will be unlocateable to others.
To examine your own privacy status, type
and your personal and room privacy is printed. To see the privacy status of any other player on the Muck (they don't need to be online), follow
privatewith the name of the player. For instance, to see if Ariel is private, type:
To turn on or off your personal privacy, type
To turn on or off the privacy of the current room, type
private -on here
private -off here
here" is actually part of the command and you cannot substitute the room name or dbref.)
privatewill not set the privacy of rooms other than the one you are in. You cannot change the privacy status of a room you don't own.
_privateproperty contains the string "yes". If it contains other text some programs may not honour your privacy.
