Executing commands as if they were input directly
 
Hi all,

I've been using something for years and I've never managed to make it perfect. I make use of a proxy between CMUD and my MUD. The proxy then allows me to connect with my phone/other remote device, and it passes commands back to CMUD for execution. This works relatively well, but one lingering thing continues to bother me years later.

I connect with my remote device, and I type: blah command here
The proxy sends to CMUD: {commandhere}blah command here
I have a trigger to grab {commandhere}($command:*), which just does #EXEC $command

The issue I have is if I use (), "", or some other chars, this gets either stripped, or the #EXEC doesn't do anything - I think this generally happens when I only use a single (.

Example: {commandhere}gossip I like these (those) things.
Local echo of $command has the () included.
Executed: gossip I like there those things.

Thoughts? Other ways to skin this cat?

-Rob

Unfortunately, if I use #SEND, I cannot use aliases in commands.

You would only need to use the #SEND in those examples with the odd characters.

I'll have to consider if there are any situations where I am using aliases along with characters that are being dropped. Checking for characters and choosing send vs not _may_ work.

I was able to make this easy.

#if %defined(1st word) then #exec, else #send

Funny that such a thing bothered me so long.
