1.4 Selection, Installation and Use of a Mud/MOO Client

    When considering a client you have to evaluate several questions:

  1. On which machine does it run (.e.g Unix, Windows, Mac)
  2. Are you using a telnet connection to work from a host machine ?
  3. What kind of terminal /screen do you use ? (e.g. ASCII terminal, X Windows, size ...)
  4. What do you want to use it for ? E.g. just for communication & navigation, building or even programming.

The clients we discuss here are not necessarily the best in all areas, but they are widely used and work on standard networking setups. All have been used by TECFA's students and TECFAMOO project team members.

General remark: On X, Mac and Windows client, choose a fixed font!
