Newbie Question

Post by Moose »

I have the complete set of rooms (with ID, names, descriptions, exits, weights etc.) and areas (ID, Names) stored in a file. My intention would be to parse that file in within Mudlet (or externally) and construct the necessary commands to create a comprehensive map from this information.

(I do not want to walk the MUD to create the map)

I have tried executing a series of commands from the command line within Mudlet, creating a script with the commands but neither has been consistent

It is not clear to me what would be the best way to execute the necessary commands

Sorry to ask such a simple question by I am missing some initial piece in the jigsaw, but would someone be able to take the time an provide that spark for me.

It's definitely possible and valid to create a map that way. The best way to do this is to create your commands as functions in a script, and have an alias call those functions.

Let us know if you need help with this!
