NAME

       kildclient - A powerful MUD client with a built-in Perl interpreter

SYNOPSIS

       kildclient [options]... [World]...

DESCRIPTION

       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.  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
       telnet://some.mud.com:4444/.

       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.
