Want to program a MUD in PERL?
Posted by Sirfer [send private reply] at August 01, 2002, 04:31:27 AM Okay....I am a beginning programmer (ie: I suck). I need someone with some experience to help me. If anyone is interested you can reach me on AIM as NinjitSerge, on MSN messenger as NinjitSerge@hotmail.com and on yahoo messnger as elfingreenchild. Ermm...It'll be a Mythical RPG if you care to know. I could really use help. Thanks.

My experience with Perl is limited to only CGI scripts, but as far as my knowledge goes Perl wouldn't be the language of choice for a MUD...were you thinking of executing it on a server as a CGI script or using GUI modules in Linux? I do have some Perl experience and I can help if you'd like, but I'm unsure of how this could be implemented.
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at August 01, 2002, 11:08:08 AM Perl is used for text processing. It would probably be good for a MUD because of its powerful regular expressions.

Posted by AngelOD [send private reply] at August 07, 2002, 03:47:17 PM I hate to be a nitpick or anything, but if you're only starting out, then programming a MUD will not be a good idea, not even with help from someone who knows what he's doing. A MUD is very complex, and must keep track of a lot of things at once, and while it's certainly not impossible to do, it's hard to do well.
Some of the bigger MUD systems out there, still suffer from a fair bit of bugs. Anyway, should you decide to go ahead with it anyway, then I wish you good luck.
