Most distressing feature in CMud yet ?..

The fact that cmud automatically (and without option if i've read correctly) expands variables in the command line is nice, however, its lack of security leaves alot to be desired.

While explaining on a public channel the effects of things such as "%pass" i conveniently alerted the mud to a password i use in quite a few places, which protects quite a bit of sensitive data.

Ok, so its nice to have this, but i think, looking back on it, that i woulda prefered to have to go [%pass] to make such a mistake, and be able to talk about %pass without wondering wtf i'm going to say by typing
Autolog is now disabled, and i'm writing something that will do the same thing, but without the possibility of spurting sensitive info to the world.

You must use an alias of some sort to speak on your channels then, as %pass does not expand from the command line itself.

You can use '#SAY %pass' to test this fact.

You can also turn off expansion on the command line by clicking the small computer icon to disable command parsing.

If you've got the basics down on how to use the bot, then let's get into some of the more advanced uses. The first thing you might want to know is that when you run the bot from command line with no arguments it will print out a help page explaining some of its common commands. [url="][/url]
