Description Vidar Karlsen 2017-01-02 01:50:11 UTC
Created attachment 178440 [details]
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?
Comment 3 Vidar Karlsen 2018-08-25 15:00:25 UTC
(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.

^Triage:

- Please set the maintainer-approval attachment flag (to +) on patches for ports you maintain (including new ports) to signify approval.

Attachment -> Details -> maintainer-approval [+]

- If your PR is related to an URL, please put it in the URL field.

I am sorry this new port is taking so long to be committed. I hope you have not lost interest in the port in the meantime: hopefully triaging will help getting the proper attention to this PR.
By the way, some committers search for contributors' patches to commit by seeking maintainer approval flags set to +: that's why it is important to not forget about them.

^Triage: Please confirm this change passes QA (portlint, poudriere at least).
