Command to a different session - playing multiple charaters
 
I'm sure I'm missing something simple here. I'm new to CMUD and just returning to mudding after a 20 year hiatus.

I'm trying to figure out how to send a command from one session toolbar to a different session.

For example lets say I have sessions named PlayerA and PlayerB. Looking at the docs it seems like I should be able to put ":PlayerB say hello world" into the PlayerA session toolbar but if I do that I'm getting text written to all sessions that looks like "PlayerA PlayerB say hello world". It does not look like the command is sent to the mud at all. What am I missing?

Thanks,
Rob

Your syntax is slightly off. Try:

:PlayerB:say hello world

If it still doesn't work try:

:windowName:#SEND {say hello world}

Both of those work. I knew I had to be missing something simple. Many thanks!
