in thread more than I can chew

I checked out the client that you're supposed to use with this particualr mud... it has a really basic scripting system which is strictly linear. The best I can do is create a horibble system of if/then loops.

I really want to do this in Perl .. the scripting language that's built into this client is soooo lame. A typical loop is constructed with "if <something> then <goto label>". There aren't any triggers .. only a "matchwait" command which cannot accept more than one value at a time.

what I would really like to do is develop a program that can be used with the existing mud client ..
