Sending arbitrary multiple line text to a trigger to parse for script testing?
 
Is there a way to input text via command line or text file that CMUD will parse as if it were text from a MUD? This is to allow offline testing or testing triggers against arbitrary text - for instance, against sample text provided in help requests on this forum. Bonus points if this arbitrary input can simulate gmcp data packets.

#RAISE anEvent?

It can both #ECHO something to the screen (to be parsed) and update variable values for testing.

I was not aware that a trigger would parse/fire on #echo (I thought the only parsing done was that CMUD would expand variables, but not that they would be checked against triggers). That will make it easier if I can type in #echo commands to an event as you suggest, and send it with a simple command to raise the event. As CMUD is multi-threaded can the triggers fire on individual lines (or series of lines) sent via a single script? Also, I have to admit I was trying to figure out a script for ekhart's request, but you have been busy and posted a script for that as well.

#ECHO and #SAY both cause triggers to fire, #PRINT does not.
It should.

Thanks for the info. This should allow any user to simulate any mud text output that they desire for the purpose of writing/testing triggers.
