       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

       -  Soruk  from AuroraMUSH for his long time contributions toward making
              and keeping TinyMUX Linux compatible,  as  well  as  the  sample
              config file found in CONFIGURATION.

       -  T.  Alexander  Popiel for help with conceptual issues in general and
              specifically with the parser.

       - Steven Legowik ( 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.

       - Ashen-Shugar and RhostMUSH for their bug reports and support.

       - Robby Griffyn and ChaoticMUX for bug reports.

       - Lew Newby (Dragon) for his stress-testing, cross-platform builds, and
              bug reports.

       - MacGuvyer @ Pacifica for a Unix patch for  WoD-realms  which  led  to
              porting all of MUX 2.0 back to Unix.

       - Nick Gammon for the initial prototype of NT IO Completion ports.

       - Judge Dredd@Pacifica for specification of WOD_REALMS.
