is it possible to temporarily hold all commands?
 
is there a way to delay things from being sent to the mud, hold them in a variable or somthing, then send them once a certain criteria is met?

in my mud magic practice is something you can mess up by doing pretty much anything until it has been completed, but there is a window between practice events where you could speak or emote without disturbing practice. is there a high level way to capture all text/commands to be sent to the mud that can be easily be switch on and off?

you can make a list of the commands you want to do

#ADDITEM toDo {sweep floors}

The command form does not allow duplicates, however, the function form does.

toDo=%additem("wash clothes", @toDo)

Then when you are ready for the next action:

#EXEC %pop(toDo)

Check to '#HELP #ONINPUT' for capturing the commands you are typing in.

Any named setting can have its enabled status toggled via:

#T+ settingName
#T- settingName

Make use of that ID field on your settings for more advanced features like this.
