MCL is a mud client for unix
like operating systems, with perl
support for scripting, chat
s, network connection status
, and a rather hefty scrollback capability. Just about everything you
could want in a mud client can be added using the perl
scripting capability. It is ummatched in it's speed as a mud client and is the best
if not the best mud client ever made.
Erwin S. Andreasen
wrote this about why he made MCL:
I wrote mcl because I needed a fast MUD client that had scroll back built in.
I hacked together a scroll back support for tintin, using less, but that
messed up when color codes were received and it was pretty slow to pipe the
saved data to less each time it was activated.
Also, tintin had a problem when a line was not received in one packet: it
would always change to a new line so long outputs looked very weird.
With embedded Perl and Python support, I am confident that mcl can do
everything tintin (and even most other clients) ever have done.
