&DESCRIBE Javelin's path functions=Functions to use here:%rgetrecurse(room#,max-distance) - returns an unsorted list of all rooms within max-distance rooms away from room#. May include duplicates%rgetall(room#,max-distance) - Same as getrecurse, with duplicates removed%rstartrecurse2(room#,max-distance) - returns the list sorted by distance (with a | between sublists of rooms at different distances), nearest to farthest. If a room can be reached through multiple paths, it appears at the shortest possible distance. This uses getrecurse2 and a bunch of temporary attributes named DIST-# to do its work. Doing this with big distances can easily hit the function invocation limit and/or lag the MUSH.
