"Tinywar doesn't exist; TinyFugue merely shouldn't."
TinyFugue, the Coolest MU* Client Ever Made, is successor of never-officially-released Tinywar, which in turn is successor of Tinytalk.
Feature list, paraphrased from the manual page:
- split screen mode (separate input line)
- Connection to multiple "worlds" (servers) at time.
- Output line wrapping
- Text editing in the input line.
- Command history and recall
- Key bindings for editing and commands
- Macro language (In my opinion slightly ugly language because it is based on chaining TF commands, there's a separate "function" syntax for evaluation, and it needs two-character expression separator (%;) and line continuation mark (\)...)
- Triggers (use commands automatically based on some output)
- Macro editing, also interactively
- "Portal" support (move automagically from one MU* to another)
- Output highlighting
- Gag (junking of text based on pattern)
- Spam suppress
- Automatic logon
- Sending of text files or system command output to the remote system
- Sending of previously received output from MUD to MUD or to screen
- Command repeat
- ...or above things at varying intervals.
- Separating LP and Diku prompts from output
- Paging a la --More--
- Recall of received text.
TF has been ported to many major platforms, even though it is primarily a *NIX client. It's available packaged in most major GNU/Linux distributions (Including Debian).
The ports to non-*NIX platforms are varying in quality. I haven't tried the Windows port but I've heard the scrolling doesn't work as advertised. Most other ports seem to require various levels of *NIX compatibility libraries to be installed and need some time to get properly tuned. But, as said, it works wonderfully in *NIXes =)
There are various extensions available that have been written in the macro language, and there's a library of cool features that comes with the client. Some of these macros are quite nifty.
I use TF on both LPMud and TinyMUCK games, and it works wonderfully. Heartily recommended.
