Summary0000636: Wrong *****TRUNCATED**** message and fixed MAX_LINES in cat()
DescriptionI saw two issues in the efun cat():
1) the efuns adds the message *****TRUNCATED**** to the player, if the requested number of lines exceeds MAX_LINES (50). Due to an off-bye-one error the message gets also added, if no output is missing (e.g. a file has MAX_LINES lines and all are printed to the user - there is still a *****TRUNCATED****.)
2) MAX_LINES should be at least compile-time configurable. Right now there is no possbility to change it in config.h/configure.
TagsNo tags attached.

3) Non-english-speaking MUDs should have a chance to change the text.

Ok, there was a suggestion to remove the efun (write/tell_object() + read_file() is nearly the same). Anybody strongly against this?

Good idea.

Ok. Because we decided to trash this efun in 0000637, I close this as WONTFIX.
