What is subj? In the 3.x (and I believe 2.x line as well) the Esc key would abort background processes if they became errant. To abort a sequence of commands it really depends on how they commands are being sent.

If it's an alias running in another thread for example and you send #STOP from a trigger (or by pressing Esc) then that would abort the background threads.

Some other folks, needing more fine-grained control over this process, have gone as far as to implement a command queue. However, without a proper description of exactly what you're trying to accomplish, it's hard to recommend a good usage scenario.

For speedwalks, you want the #PAUSE or #STOP command. Just make a trigger(s) on the text which tells you that you need to interrupt the speedwalk. Or if you want manual control, maybe a button or alias, or just type the command on the command line.

For interrupting the #nnn command, I'm not sure there is a good way to interrupt it. I would recommend against doing #10000 kill target. There are plenty of other ways to write something that will send a series of identical commands, which can include tests to halt repetition when necessary. One potential problem that springs to mind with #10000 kill target is that Cmud is much faster than Zmud. You probably don't want hundreds of kill commands sent off to the mud in one second! I'm sure the mud admins wouldn't appreciate it. In fact, if you tried to manually abort a command like that, it's possible that all the commands would have been sent to the mud before you can hitthe escape key.

Do you have other cases where you want to interrupt commands?

#stop and #pause works only on slow walking. If i try to it them when speedwalking with doubleclick or {%walkmode(0); #walk @temp_room} its do nothing. So i can interrupt it only with ESC ((

Actually, #stop also works to stop a background thread when given a valid thread id number as the argument. Use the #thread command to see the thread id value.

Trying to do that... when speedwalk fired i see only thread
xx [u] Main running
If i try to stop it by "stop xx" then all freezes and need to kill cmud process after.

Can u say what command list ESC key do?


ps another problem with editing triggers(macros vars ...)
I cant write using cyrillic in main trigger field. But easily do that in name trigger field. I usually copy/paste to main filed from name f or notepad... its inconvenient to use it

It is not possible to interrupt speedwalking in Fast mode or Safe mode, because all the movement commands are sent right away. By the time you try to hit the ESC key or do anything else to interrupt your walk, the mud has already recieved all of the commands. Only in Slow mode can you interrupt the speedwalk, and that is done with #PAUSE or #STOP.

As for your problems with cyrillic font--Cmud does not currently have support for Unicode. Some things may by chance work with cyrillic font, but you will continue to have problems with cyrillic font until Zugg has time to write in support for Unicode. It is a known problem, and one he wants to get to, but is not at the top of the priority list.

If you want to abort a sequence of commands that you send, e.g.
Code:
look goblin;
disarm goblin;
kill goblin


Then you will probably need to implement your own command queue. If you've already sent the commands CMUD can't stop them from being processed by the MUD.
