One of the issues I've had lately with BYOND's input system is the fact that it will only show the first 200 items in a list when asking for user input. This works normally, except with large lists such as ban lists, Kajika's edit command and a few other special verbs/procs which often generate lists beyond this size limit.

Thus I came up with this system, which simply splits the lists up into chunks readable by input, saving much time and stress.

To use, include this file amonst your other project files and then simply call the proc on whoever is going to do the input, along with the message to display and the list of choices.
