tinymux - The TinyMUX mush server
This manual page documents briefly the tinymux mush server. It was
written for the Debian distribution because the original program does
not have a manual page.
This is the TinyMUX flavor of mud servers of the MUSH branch. It
provides a number of robust features to enable players to extend the
virtual world. This is done by building new rooms and objects, and
utilizing its internal programming language, MUSHcode.
TinyMUX doesn’t provide the superset of features available in other
MUSH flavors, but those it does implement provide a stable and robust
environment that performs as well as or better than that of its peers.
TinyMUX 2.3 is derived from TinyMUX 1.6. It is maintained by Stephen
Dennis (Brazil@BrazilMUX) and would not exist without the generous
contributions of many individuals. Ideas for features, occasionally
code, documentation, project support, bug hunting, came from many
places, including TinyMUSH, ChaoticMUX, RhostMUSH, and PennMUSH.
We would like to thank the following people:
- Barbarella@Pacifica for making it fun, for proving to me that MU’ing
is a Good Thing (tm), for pulling me into hosting and server
work. Without the choices she made, MUX 2.0 would never have
- David Passmore for his long time care and maintenance of TinyMUX.
- Andrew Molitor, for the radix compression library, and some wonderful

and keeping TinyMUX Linux compatible, as well as the sample

- T. Alexander Popiel for help with conceptual issues in general and
specifically with the parser.
- Steven Legowik (BEM@Erisian.net) for Makefile, cross-platform work,
and modifications to Backup.
- Virginia Legowik (Audumla) and Lilith@Sandbox for committed readme
and helpfile work. For infrastructure support with web sites and
mailing lists. For making a team.
