    What do I need for this project?

    I'm new to programming, and one of my goals is to create from scratch my very own MUD code base. So my question is this: What all needs to be programmed for that? What are the different elements of a text-based game that allows for multiple connection through the internet?

    I'm not asking for people to do this work for me, quite the opposite actually. I just need to know what elements need to be included in such an endeavor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Step 1: Learn the language. Here is a list of suggested books.
    Code:
    If(step1 == complete)
         goto Step_1; //Another acceptable use of goto
    Step 2: Learn how networking works. Here is a good starting place.
    Step 3: Learn how to make a game. Here is a good starting place.

    Hmm... While that isn't quite what I had in mind when I posted my question, it does answer it both concisely and thoroughly. Much appreciated!

    If my rudimentary language skills serve me, your code indicates that I'll never truly finish Step 1?

    If I have more code specific questions, I will bring them back here.

    They serve you quite well. You will never stop learning in programming.
