Corner Gibbing

Is gibbing corpses by wall edges near doors a bug or feature?


For example:
....#.
...@#.
....#.
....?.
....#.
Firing shotgun on bloody ? symbol leaves no corpse of ? on corner or around

Its for sure not about taking a lot of damage, because if you move closer to enemy - corpse will fly for 2 cells away.

Corpses disappear if killed on open door tiles. I think that's because there's no good ASCII character for "corpse in open door" so the developers decided to simply erase the corpse from existence instead.

Feature. How else do you think some psychos around here pull off ~100% N! wins?

Corpses disappear on door tiles probably because corpses were crushed by doors in Doom and this feature went to DoomRl in a bit modified way.

This.
Basically.
Also, why write a "corpse on a door" tile, and inherit all the interactions if you don't have to?

Don't worry, it's not a bug. It's definitely intentional. It's not abusing something if it's intentional, right?
