Inscribing prayer books with @p<#> has no effect

Start a priest, learn bless, and inscribe the prayer book with @p1. If you then try to cast Bless with p1d, it stops at the prayer book list. To make it work, you have to inscribe the prayer book with @m1 instead.

Running 4.2.2 via Cuboideb's Android release.

I'm not. User interface options (=a) says that rogue_like_commands is no.

Even if I was, inscribing @m1 to get p1 to work makes no sense.

It happens in the win port too. The p gets converted to m before parsing the inscription. I'll take a look.

It’s in all the ports.

I’m pretty sure it’s because the “real” spellcasting command is ‘m’, and ‘p’ is just a keymap. I’ve opened an issue on GitHub about it. (OK, two of them.)

This is correct, and it's something that's come up occasionally. The 'p' command is really vestigial - it has been just a keymap for 'm' for a long time now. Given that there are now rituals and verses as well as spells and prayers, it really should have just been removed in 4.2.0 to make things less confusing. Anyone object to that happening now?

No objection from me. I kind of figured that it had been aliased to 'm', but was just used to 'p' from way back when.

No objection: "m" is clearly the most recurrent letter in "spell", "prayer", "ritual" and "verse".
