       pennmush - The PennMUSH mush server


       This  manual  page  documents  briefly  the  pennmush mush server.  It was written for the
       Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

       This is the PennMUSH flavor of mud servers of the MUSH branch. It  provides  a  number  of
       flexible features to enable players to extend the virtual world.  This is done by building
       new rooms and objects, and utilizing its internal programming language, MUSHcode.

       PennMUSH provides flexible compatibility with the MUSHcode features of many of  the  other
       common MUSH flavors, as well as its own approach to them.

       The  original  TinyMUSH  1.0  code was written by Lawrence Foard, and was based upon James
       Aspnes' TinyMUD server. Since then, the code has  been  modified  by  the  programmers  of
       MicroMUSE  (then MicroMUSH), and Joseph Traub (Moonchilde of PernMUSH).  From January 1992
       to January 1995, Lydia Leong (Amberyl of PernMUSH / Polgara of Belgariad)  maintained  the
       code  currently  known  as  PennMUSH  1.50.   From January 1995 on, Alan Schwartz (Paul of
       DuneMUSH / Javelin elsewhere) has been maintaining this code,  along  with  a  development

       Big  thanks to the developers of TinyMUSH 2.0, 2.2 [2.2], 3.0 [3], Mux2, and Rhost [Rhost]
       servers, as well as to the players of Belgariad MUSH, DuneMUSH, and M*U*S*H, and  everyone
       else using this server!
