       kildclient - A powerful MUD client with a built-in Perl interpreter


       kildclient [options]... [World]...


       This manual page documents briefly the KildClient program.

       KildClient  is a MUD Client written with the GTK+ windowing toolkit. It
       supports many common features of other clients, such as triggers, gags,
       aliases,  macros,  timers,  and  much more. But its main feature is the
       built-in  Perl  interpreter.  You  can  at  any  moment  execute   Perl
       statements  and  functions  to do things much more powerful than simply
       sending text the the mud. Perl statements can also be run, for example,
       as  the  action  of  a trigger, allowing you to do complex things. Some
       built-in functions of KildClient allow interaction with the world, such
       as sending commands to it.

       You  can  specify  the  name of one or more saved Worlds in the command
       line, this/these World(s) will be automatically opened. If you  do  not
       specify  any World, you are prompted for the MUD to connect to. You can
       enter the host and port directly, or you can  select  from  a  list  of
       saved MUDs. Once connected, type commands in the separate entry box and
       press ENTER to send them to the MUD. You can edit the  commands  before
       sending, since they only get sent when ENTER is pressed. You can recall
       previous commands with the arrow keys, or by pressing the button to the
       right of the command entry box.

       There  are  many  more  features,  many  options  for  configuring  the
       program’s behaviour. For more details, see the KildClient manual, which
       is usually installed in the /usr/share/doc/kildclient directory.


       This  program  follows  the  usual  GNU  command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary  of  options  is
