KBtin - a MUD client and an environment for line-based programs
KBtin [ -v ] [ scriptfile [ scriptfile2 ... ]]
KBtin is a MUD client based on the venerable tintin++ ; however it has uses beyond playing MUDs. A few commands (try #help for the full list): #session sesname hostname port Starts a new session. The sesname is a nickname of the new session, and doesn't play any important role. KBtin will open a telnet connection to the given hostname : port. #run sesname command Starts a new session by running a local command. In particular, you can use it to start an encrypted connection by #run foo ssh foo.bar.baz. #help command Gives you the help on command. #verbatim Disables all input parsing, making all text pass as-is. Features such as scrollback, highlights, logging, keybindings or actions continue to work. #end Exits KBtin and returns you to your shell.
-v Shows the processing done by all subsequent uses of #read. Equivalent to #verbose 1. -q Turns off the output from #read. Equivalent to #verbose 0. scriptname Processes the commands in scriptname, using #read scriptname. -c command Executes a single command. (Note: beware of the evil shell and escape '#'s!) -s host port Starts a new session by opening a TELNET connection to the given host on the given port. KBtin will make up a session name for you. -S host port Same, except that SSL encryption will be used. -r shell_command Starts a new session by starting a local process. The process will be opened in a pseudo-terminal, making it interactive. The session name will be made up by KBtin. -p Selects the "pipe" driver (default if stdin or stdout is not a terminal). -i Selects the full interactive tty driver (usual default).
