   // statements here

Statement syntax

rule example {
    // criteria
    say "example", $sender; // arguments can be without names
    say message:"example", target:$sender; // or all named to prevent ambiguity
    say "example", target:$sender; // or only some named

Random syntax

response example {
    random {
        say "Hi", "p:fullwall" : 0.5;
        say "Hi2", "p:fullwall" : 0.3;

Each statement is checked for the given probability; if the check fails, it moves on to the next one. Once a successful check is reached, the statement is executed and no more are checked.

java|js|py|lua|rb|clj|scala [code:"code"]

Evaluates raw code based on input. Note: JS is built into Java, but all others require additional programs. Eg. rb requires installing JRuby, scala requires installing scala, etc. Java evaluation is done within a run() method of an anonymous runnable class. Only org.bukkit imports can be unprefixed; message fullwall if you want more to be automatically imported.
