F383: Control a character who is knocking on or opening a door (3)
The address of this interruptible subcommand routine is placed into bytes 0x0E and 0x0F of a character's buffer by the routine at F375. At this point, either the character has opened the door already (in which case this routine does nothing more than verify that the door is still open and then terminate the subcommand), or he is knocking on the door repeatedly (in which case he must be a policeman).
H Character number (0xD7-0xE5)
F383 LD L,$00 Point HL at byte 0x00 of the character's buffer
F385 BIT 2,(HL) Does the character have his arm raised?

F38A CALL $F293 Check whether the door is open
F38D EX DE,HL H=character number
F38E JP NZ,$F284 Terminate this subcommand if the door is open
This character must be a policeman. In this case, he will knock repeatedly for a while, and then open the door by force if there's no answer.
F391 LD L,$10 Decrement the counter in byte 0x10 of the policeman's buffer
F393 DEC (HL)
F394 JP NZ,$F33C Raise the policeman's arm for another knock if the counter has not reached zero
