Word Wrapping of long sentences [v3.30]
 
I play on Shadows of Isildur mud and I have noticed that sometime the text coming back from the mud wraps to a second line but not always.
Here is the text from the mud. Notice that it is exactly the same length.

Code:
<****** / ||||||> get bucket cart
You get a dirty bucket filled with filthy water from a wooden
push-cart.

Code:

<****** / ||||||> put bucket cart
You put a dirty bucket filled with filthy water into a wooden push-cart.


I am told by the the MUD that this is NOT coming from the mud, but my client. I have checked all over in the preferences and I don't have word wrap turned on.
Goto Preferences->Sessions->Word Wrap Tab (both checkboxes are not marked)

I talked to the programmers of the mud and they do not have any code that auto word wraps sentences.

perhaps it's not automatic. If you connect in a new session without any triggers or anything, does it still happen?

Yes. It still does it.

Here is the output from the debugger:
Code:

As shown by this line:
Code:
i  Shadowso <You get <ESC>[32ma pair of rough, stained reddish homespun leggings<ESC>[0m from <ESC>[32ma brown <CR><LF>
wooden bin<ESC>[0m. <CR><LF>

The MUD is sending a CR LF after the word "brown". This dump is from the raw network socket input directly from the MUD. So your MUD coders are wrong. They *are* adding the newline. CMUD is displaying exactly what it should be. Notice in the second example the MUD does not add any CR LF. I have no idea why the MUD is treating the two lines differently. But it's not anything CMUD is adding.
