Reverses a speed walk string


BSTR ReverseSpeedwalk(BSTR SpeedWalkString)

View list of data type meanings


Reverses a supplied string based on the rules for "speed walking". See EvaluateSpeedwalk for a detailed description of those rules.

For example:

4n 3e s u w d LW

When reversed, this would become:

LE U E D N 3W 4S

If you supply a "special string" in parentheses, then the order of the words in parentheses is reversed. This lets you do special actions (eg. NE for NorthEast), and supply the reverse direction.

For example:

4n (se/nw)(in/out)

This would become:

(out/in) (nw/se) 4S

VBscript example

world.note world.ReverseSpeedwalk ("4n3esuwdLW(ne/sw)")

Jscript example

world.note(world.ReverseSpeedwalk ("4n3esuwdLW(ne/sw)"));

PerlScript example

$world->note($world->ReverseSpeedwalk ("4n3esuwdLW(ne/sw)"));

Python example

world.note(world.ReverseSpeedwalk ("4n3esuwdLW(ne/sw)"))

Lua example

Note(ReverseSpeedwalk ("4n3esuwdLW(ne/sw)"))

Return value

The supplied string, with the speedwalk directions reversed as described above.
If there is an error in the speed walk string then the first character of the returned string will be an asterisk ("*"), and the rest will be an English error message.
