Projects / powwow


powwow is a client program that replaces telnet for the lazy MUDder who wants some extra features. It is primarily designed for DikuMUDs, but nothing prevents its use for other types of MUDs. It is based on cancan, but was entirely rewritten. It also implements the MUME remote editing protocol, which allows you to edit text on the MUD using your own favorite editor (several texts at once if you have a windowing terminal). powwow is extendable through loadable modules to add support for new languages like Perl and JavaScript.
