       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. 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.

       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 included below.  For a complete description,
       see the HTML manual.
