The thing is getchar() and putchar() and functions used to get/put characters
from the actual computer. You cannot use these functions, unless you want to
stuff up your MUD, because we want to send and get information through a
TCP socket, not over a terminal. That is why you can't simply use the printf()
function, too.

Sorry to bring bad news.
