Perhaps people of specialized calibre will have begun to read this list since my previous request for this information. <heh>. I've been looking through the socket header files and the socket routines within CircleMUD, and have made a few conclusions regarding the specific operations of how CircleMUD telnets, however I am no closer (yet) to knowing how to generate my own input routines. It seems that CircleMUD receives user information via lines of data; the user types in a line, which the client handles, then when RETURN is pressed the client send that line of text which CircleMUD processes; My interests are to find a method of control over the information typed by the user in two instances: 1) Ability to redisplay the line of text being entered without having the user required to press Ctrl-R (or whatever other method is used). 2) Capability of reading a single character from the telnet port. Possibly after another month or so of digging I may discover more; I'm curious if anyone has had luck in this endeavour and may share some information with me that may increase my chance of success.
