REAL MEN use TinyFugue.

Vashti's Web: tinyfugue
tinyfugue is unquestionably the most powerful MUD client
available under Linux, and probably on any platform.
It's also hairy enough to send grown men screaming into
the night at the thought of having to use it - so, of
course, I had to learn more about it.
On this page I'll put some of the macro packages I've put
together. Many are Discworld specific, but some are not.
Some of them may work with tf versions older than 5.0, but
I wouldn't want to bet on it. Most contain documentation
within them, so be sure to have a look at it.
Thanks to Shinobi@Discworld who got me started with tf.

Curious's board post from 2000.
This package simplifies the process of responding to
This will create a logfile automatically every time you

This monitors the amount of xp you make in five minutes,
then prints a report and extrapolates to tell you how much
xp you would have made at the end of the hour, if you
continued making xp at the same rate.
This modifies score brief and the combat monitor to include
the difference between the last instance and the current one
- so by how much your hp, gp and xp have changed since then.
This tracks your xp and teaching and tells you when you
have amassed enough xp to learn the skill you last failed
This lets you save certain variables to a dotfile and
restore them from .tfrc or similar. Note that later
tf5 betas have similar functionality built in, but some
of the packages on this page still use this.
This makes talker channel one appear the same as the
rest of the talker channels - that is, with "(One)" at
the start. Inspired by TGGM.
