    Bug Report: Vestigial Code in CoreRPG?

    Maybe I'm missing something, but it appears to me as though there is some vestigial code in the CoreRPG ruleset.

    As near as I can tell, three tables in scripts\manager_utility.lua are completely unused.

    tEncodeBoolean { } in function encodeRollToOOB(...) at approximately line 363

    tDecodeNumber { } in function decodeRollFromOOB( ) at approximately line 380
    tDecodeBoolean { } also in function decodeRollFromOOB( ) at approximately line 381

    As always, Thanks for listening..

    As my knowledge of programming is limited to deduction and testing, based on instincts... what would these fields do if they worked?

    Nothing. They are never referenced for use, only defined. Probably left over from a previous iteration, or alternate implementation approach.

    I’m not trying to be flip or demeaning in any way, but, I think that question doesn’t make sense in the current context. It’s the wrong question to ask.

    A non programming example would be, say you buy a new house, and when you get ready to move in, in the middle of the living room is a clean, empty pail (a bucket). Just sitting there on the floor.

    To ask the question, “what might that be used for, if I pick it up?” It’s just not sensical.
