View list of data type meanings


Gets the default value of a MUSHclient <world> option, as it would be directly after creating a new world.

You can use GetOptionList, and GetAlphaOptionList, to get a list of the names of all possible options.

The return type is Variant, so the returned value will be the appropriate type for the data (ie. string or number (long)).

If the option name is not known, or is not allowed to be retrieved, a NULL variant is returned.

Note: Available in version 3.23 onwards.

VBscript example
world.note world.GetDefaultValue ("port")  
world.note world.GetDefaultValue("player")
Jscript example
world.note (world.GetDefaultValue ("port"));  
world.note (world.GetDefaultValue ("player"));
PerlScript example
$world->note ($world->GetDefaultValue ("port"));
$world->note ($world->GetDefaultValue ("player"));
Python example
