kildclient - A powerful MUD client with a built-in Perl interpreter
This manual page documents briefly the KildClient
is a MUD Client written with the GTK+ windowing toolkit. It
supports many common features of other clients, such as triggers, gags,
aliases, macros, timers, and much more. But its main feature is the built-in
Perl interpreter. You can at any moment execute Perl statements and functions
to do things much more powerful than simply sending text the the mud. Perl
statements can also be run, for example, as the action of a trigger, allowing
you to do complex things. Some built-in functions of KildClient allow
interaction with the world, such as sending commands to it.
You can specify the name of one or more saved Worlds in the command line,
this/these World(s) will be automatically opened. You can also specify a host
name to connect to in the command line. By default, connection in made to port
4000. You can specify a different port by using hostname:port. While not
recommended, you can also specify a username and password with the following
syntax: username:password@hostname:port. This host specification syntax can be
prefixed with telnet:// and end with /, for example
If you do not specify any World, you are prompted for the MUD to connect to. You
can enter the host and port directly, or you can select from a list of saved
MUDs. Once connected, type commands in the separate entry box and press ENTER
to send them to the MUD. You can edit the commands before sending, since they
only get sent when ENTER is pressed. You can recall previous commands with the
arrow keys, or by pressing the button to the right of the command entry box.
