Re: [pcgen] Creating CHOICE List that lists certain equipment
- This probably belongs in the LST file help group. Please send further
It sounds like what you want is CHOOSE:EQUIPMENT, which I believe showed
up in 5.17.4. If you're set on sticking with 5.16.4, CHOOSE:EQUIPTYPE
will do something like what you want, but you can't limit it to a PC's
equipment. (I think CHOOSE:EQUIPTYPE is in 5.16.4 ...)
