Latest commit

#### Brief overview of PR changes/additions
The automated action of building the LDocs hasn't been working for some
months due to an errant LDoc comment. See
for failure log. This PR fixes that and some improvements to the code

- Fix all warnings
- Add a few new comments
- Add links to Mudlet Manual where appropriate
- Change some tags to LDoc style

#### Motivation for adding to Mudlet
Comment introduced in #6801 broke the automated build.

#### Other info (issues closed, discussion etc)
As above did some extra work on tidying up the docs. Still more to do
like some missing parameter and return comments, but this will fix the
automated action at least.

Interfaces players have created with Mudlet


Mudlet is a quality MUD client, designed to take mudding to a new level.

It’s a modern breed of a client on the gaming scene – with an intuitive user interface, a specially designed scripting framework, and a very fast text display. That, along with cross-platform capability and an open-source development model result in a very likable game client.

Key Features

  • Simple to use
  • Very, very fast
  • Active development
  • Big, thriving community
  • Powerful trigger engine
  • Rich Lua-based coding functionality (API)
  • Excellent script editor
  • 2D and 3D mapper with autowalk
  • Powerful and simple to use GMCP
  • Discord integration
  • Completely themable
  • Open-source and Free
  • Cross platform: runs on Windows, macOS and Linux
  • Full compatibility: run same scripts on any of the above

Easy to use client

We’re big on usability, and as such, creating an easy to use client and interface is one of the defining goals of the project. This applies to both the power users and usual gamers – everyone will feel at home with Mudlet, without having to waste too much time figuring out how to do something.

Designed for speed

Mudlet is designed and built to be very fast and efficient right from the start. Its scripting engine is designed to scale to large systems without bogging down – and the text display is designed to handle thousands of lines in under a second. All in all, we are very serious about Mudlet being quick – and take all measures to make it so.

Powerful Scripting

Mudlet features a scripting framework using Lua – a small, fast and efficient scripting language. This allows Mudlet to leverage the existing community and large ecosystem of existing packages for Lua without the many drawbacks of creating a Mudlet specific scripting language. Best of all, the Lua API is seamlessly integrated in Mudlet and shared by all aliases, triggers, scripts, keybindings, buttons and other Mudlet components.

Cross-Platform love

We believe in making Mudlet available to people on all major platforms, and we work on keeping cross-platform compatibility right from start. Mudlet is available on Linux (both 32bit and 64bit), Windows, and macOS; you may be able to run it on additional platforms as well.
