shar file for shells/mudsh

A MUD based shell, rescued from the pages of time. The original hosting site,
xirium.com, seems to be dead since ~2008.

Is there any reason why a shell (or command line) cannot be as tolerant or as
intelligent as a text adventure game like Zork, or a MUD [Multi User Dungeon]?
Is there any reason why a shell cannot work like such a game? ("Go North",
etc.) Actually, no and we have the implementation to prove it. Have fun, and
don't get eaten by a Grue!

Submitter still wanting this added?  Also why use archive.org for www and not just use GitHub page url?

(In reply to Nathan from comment #2)
I used the archive.org URL for historical reasons. The GitHub README links to that as well, so either way works for me.
