What I'd really like to see is not so much a MUD written in Perl (though that's fine), but instead, one that uses Perl as the in-game programming language. (Instead of the lisp-like MUSH code, or c-like stuff in a MOO or an lp/diku.) I spent a lot of time on roleplaying TinyMUSHes in a previous life, and it would be awfully nice to be able to implement the complex systems that people implement (like entire RPG rulesets) in perl, rather than MUSHcode. That stuff is ugly!

I considered once doing a mod-perl like extention to MUSH, but that was shortly before I pretty much stopped playing. It would be an interesting (if huge) project.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
