  • noun The part of MUD2 which finds the referents of a command's nouns in the context of the game. If you 'drop gold' it means drop the objects of class gold that you are carrying; 'get gold' means get the the golden objects in your room; 'steal gold from <player>' means steal the golden objects that <player> is carrying; 'wh gold' means find all golden objects, no matter where they may be. The binder determines which specific objects the command refers to, and executes the command on each such object. The binder is also the deep magic that makes sense of noun phrases like 'the 2 fullest locked boxes which are also gold but not marked "CORN FLAKES"'. See parser, interpreter, command.
