It would be so very kind of you NOT to send HTML-ized e-mail since many
people have e-mail clients which cannot and do not translate the HTML.

I have 104 levels - 100 mortal & 4 immortal. With multiclassing, it's 200
*mortal* levels maximum.

Anyway.. you should be reading the docs & READMEs as well as the last four
lines of every single posting to the CircleMUD Mailing List
(circle@POST.QUEENSU.CA), if you want help with simple questions like this
and your previous one.


Has anyone attempted a port (okay, not a *complete* port) of the MUD from
FreeBSD to Linux, only to find out that somehow (s/f)printf() do not work
properly anymore? For some reason, when my MUD (original base is CircleMUD
3.0 beta patchlevel 11 w/ OasisOLC v1.5) goes from FreeBSD to Linux,
there's always some kind of problem with syntax and often in some commands
(i.e. ACMD()s such as do_who), the output is all messed up.

This is not a critical problem for me right now since I still have access
to a FreeBSD shell to run my MUD off of, but I'd like to get comments from
the list as to whether it's most likely a mistake on my part or if there is
a true problem taking CircleMUD or its descendants from FreeBSD to Linux
and vice versa.
