Weird trailing carriage return

Hey all. Having some issues with MUSHclient, which is my client of choice. I'm building a conformat, and having some issues where, in some rooms I get a random trailing carriage return, and in some rooms with the same setup, I do not get that return. It looks like, in some of the rooms, there's some extra trailing space on the last line and in some of the rooms there isn't.

A visual of that can be found here:

I'm wondering if any type of line length might be the problem? I have had multiple people check the code and it's not the code causing it. It also seems to do this in Potato MU* client in the exact same manner.

How do you know it is a carriage-return? Normally the client simply removes them.

Try a packet debug. Go to Edit menu -> Debug Packets. Find the problem room and reproduce the problem. Then go to the packet window which would have opened and paste the results here. Then turn packet debug off or it will eventually slow things down.

Also:

Template:bug

Please provide a summary of your world configuration:

  • Either use the scripting Immediate window (Ctrl+I) to execute: Debug ("summary")

    or

  • Install the Summary plugin (see "Summary" feature) and type "summary"

Then copy the resulting information from the output window, and paste into a Forum message.

You need version 4.55 onwards of MUSHclient to do this.

Hrm. There was a brief flash of a new window, but no new window stayed open.

Also, I misspoke. It looks like in the rooms that it is doing it, it's adding a bunch of extra trailing spaces, not a full carriage return (it's visible in the screengrabs I posted).

Let me fiddle with this to see if I can get the packet debut to display.

Here's the summary though.

Based on that packet debug, this is what I get:


look
VB1 - Linden(#86Rn)
        An upper-middle class area, Linden boasts an arrangement of well-appointed homes, set up with large and fenced yards and borders. The neighborhood is expensive, Brownstones and sprawling ranches enclosed in fences or walls. The area is patrolled and well-appointed, with most of the residential area being spread out and residential taking up most all of the neighborhood. Linden Elementary and Linden High Schools are here, as well as Hancock Academy, a private academy from K-12. At the southeast end of the city is the large Linden Walk park, a huge park with attached pavillion and performance area. In the northeastern end of the area, just west of Helena Bridge is the Marina, an easy access area to waters where the port activities do not effect. At the east end of the neighborhood, the Linden Country Club sits, a place of relaxation for the affluent in the area. Helena's Bridge, named for the second matriarch of the Queen family, runs across the channel and to Queen Island. I-5 runs south through the neighborhood, onramps allowing easy access, and the Crosstown Freeway is easily accessible here.

In what way is this not what you expect?

I replaced spaces with tick marks so you can see where the spaces are:

That shows the error then, which is weird. There's an extra space running past PennMUSH's standard 80 character limit, but not in every room apparently. The picture I posted in the first post shows what it is doing, in two rooms with the exact same setup.

I don't think PennMUSH normally wraps output. The descriptions don't have newlines, so you can fit them to whatever screen size you want.
