Re: Built in varaibles during verb execution

Personally, I use the other form, when my syntax won't fit.

if you use the argstr, @args, args[x] where x is the number of the word
after the verb, it handles the parsing for you, fairly well, and you only
have to worry that your syntax isn't close enough to the object prep object
syntax to accidentally trigger the iobj/dobj translation.

I can pass information from within a verb this way, without a problem.
