Muddweller (Mac)


MUDDweller supports multiple sessions, connections with either the communication tool-box or with Mac TCP, a command history and simple file transfer mechanisms. In version 1.2, the main window is now re-sizable and supports more than 32K of word-wrapped text in an arbitrary font and size. This version also adds support for logging a session to a file and for simple macros. Macros can be used to automate the login / logout process or to perform a fixed set of operations when a key is pressed.

The author seems to have given up development at version 1.2. Too bad!

Distribution: at ftp://rudolf.ethz.ch/pub/mud/ and ftp://ftp.tcp.com/pub/mud/Clients/ and ftp://mac.archive.umich.edu/mac/util/comm/ and (a maybe old version) from Tecfa's FTP server


Ease of Use:
Easy to use, installation can be a bit tricky for beginners (need to fill in Mac TCP/IP questions)

Copy/Paste to other applications:

Multiple Connections:

Command Repetition:
Yes (???)

Local Editing:
No, means you have to use the mud/moo editors

Session Logs:

Overall judgment:
Nice client for ordinary users, not very well suited for development.
