I have written a set of Perl Programs/ Modules that with a bit of user set up, is able to log into a mud, prance about, kill mobs, and protect itself. Perl makes for the BEST language I have ever written in for doing mud work because of its inherent abliity to work with text. I'm setting up a CVS with sourceforge soon. I'll post a link when I have it all done. This goes the same for writing the mud server as well. (actually, the code can be easily reused and I'm working on that too. I am a nut.).
