Starting in 2008, CDMoyer began implementing extensive chat commands for in-game actions. Much of the documentation listed here is taken from CDMoyer's forum posts on the subject.

Multiple game commands can be strung together using "&&" (for example "/cook plain pizza && /eat plain pizza"), which will execute those operations in order. They can also be placed into macros.

Fuzzy matching

These commands use fuzzy matching to identify the items, outfits, skills, and other things you want to use. This means the commands will attempt to accept partial names and even initials (i.e. "bor" for "bottle of rum"). Matching the start of a phrase or an exact acronym takes precedence over containing a phrase.

Be careful, since inattentive typing can have frustrating results. "/buy 11 mm" (instead of mmj) will buy 11 tenderizing hammers and not the ten-times cheaper magical mystery juice you intended.

All (or nearly all) of the gameplay chat commands support an "interrogation mode" which lets you test what the fuzzy matching will match. Simply add a question mark (?) directly to the command, for example: "/eat? pp".

Crafting commands

/cook
/mix
/ply
/smith
/paste
/make
Usage: [number] [item]
Examples:
/cook 3 plain pizza
/mix roll in the hay
/make 2 meat stack

[number] is optional, and if it is omitted, 1 item will be crafted. [item] must be the name, partial name or initials of an item in your discovery list for that crafting discipline. Be careful, play around with it before you decide to cook 500 of something and find out that the fuzzy matching matched something you didn't intend. Keep in mind, the matching is based on the discovery list of your current character! (If multiple items are determined to be equally good matches, through magic, it will give you a list and tell you to be more specific.)

These commands will trigger crafting, as though you clicked the one-click crafting link inside of the crafting section. This means that they will use turns as normal, fail if you don't have the ingredients and other sane things.
