kildclient - A powerful MUD client with a built-in Perl interpreter
kildclient [options]... [World]...
This manual page documents briefly the KildClient program.
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. 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.
There are many more features, many options for configuring the
program’s behaviour. For more details, see the KildClient manual, which
is usually installed in the /usr/share/doc/kildclient directory.
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes (‘-’). A summary of options is
