7.13 "GROUPING" ITEMS

Some types of items in Imperian can be lumped together and treated as a single
item. For instance, if you're carrying 16 red inks, it's nice to group them
together so you can manage them easier, and move them around all at once.
Once combined, they are treated as one, and giving, dropping, (but not inking
obviously), etc manipulate the 'group' as a whole. To create and manage groups,
you can use the following commands:

   COMBINE <item> AND <item>
     -or-
   COMBINE <item> [FULLY]

      The first will join a pair of items into a single group (if they are
      the same type of thing and capable of being grouped of course). The
      second will combine all of the same type into a single group regardless
      of how many you have. Note that this can work both in your inventory
      and on the ground (but it will check your inventory first).

      Example:

         COMBINE RED INK
            (Combines all of the red ink in your inventory into a single
             item representing all of them.)


   SPLIT <item> <# of ways> [WAYS]

      This will split a grouped item into a specified number of groups.
      It will try to split them evenly, but if it can't then there will
      be one group that holds the difference. For example, a group of 8
      can be split 3 ways, but it will result in two groups of 2 and a
      single group of 4.

   SPLIT <item> <num>/<num>

      This will split the grouped item into two groups, with proportions
      specified by the given fraction. For example, 2/3 or 50/50.

      Example (while holding a group of 10 red inks):

         SPLIT RED INK 50/50
            (Results in two groups being formed, each with 5 inks.)

   SPLIT <item> INTO GROUPS OF <num>

      Split the item in to as many groups as possible, each group having
      a specified number in it. Note, that you can only split into 250
      groups at a time this way.
