Simple Question - Is a tin opener metal? -HappyFoppy

It's made out of iron. --Paxed 10:01, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
If you want to find out the material of any other object, take a look in objects.c. (Teach a man to fish, and all that.) Most of the time the material doesn't make much difference, so most of the item infoboxes don't include it. -- Killian 11:03, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Can you feed a tin to your dog by opening the tin somehow? --Preceding unsigned comment added by Slarty (talkcontribs)

No. Pets will never eat tins, although you can throw a tin at a hostile domestic animal to make it peaceful. -- Qazmlpok 23:39, May 26, 2010 (UTC)
Pet xorns, rock moles, and rust monsters can eat tins. Probably not what you want ... Tjr 08:28, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
Are you sure? I had thought that was the case (I know the player can eat a tin directly when polymorphed), but I tried it in wizard mode and neither a pet rock mole or xorn would eat the tin I gave it. I don't think the contents should matter for this, or do they? -- Qazmlpok 11:39, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, I didn't wiz-test. I have observed xorns (even pets) eat metal junk, and players in xorn form can eat tins. At least in the latter case, the contents do matter. Tjr 17:39, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
