I am sure this is very simple but i just don't seem to get it.

I have several containers. i want to retrieve and sell items from those containers.

i have tried

get %1 from pack|satchel
sell %1

but it says it cannot find pack|satchel. i tried adding brakets but to no avail

where am i going wrong?

Are you using this in a trigger or as part of a script? I want to say triggers can't currently recognize "pipes" for "or" conditions except as part of a regexp.

actually i had it in an alias.

i have several alias's where i have to repeat lines with alternative item names ie

get %1 from pack
get %1 from satchel


open door
open box

i was just trying to reduce the commands i sent to the world and tidy up the alias by having one line that did both. it isn't a big deal really..i suppose i was just trying to learn something. and therein lies the danger :)

If it is an alias in game, then either you put in something wrong, or uyou don't have what you're trying to get or get from. Check your inv and double check keywords

Using pipes won't save you any commands, since the MUD obviously doesn't understand them, judging by the output it gives. So the commands are still sent to the MUD as if you put them one after the other. And when you try to learn something you always do learn something, which is the point of learning. It's just that sometimes you learn the opposite of what you expected to learn ;)
