    Okay, this response is for the first question. Most people use a getchar() loop, and keep doing it until they have the enter key, and then they perform the syntax processor. This is how I was taught to do this. There are probably other ways to do this, but I think that the way I described will be the best way. Keep in mind though, I've never written a mud...

    excuse my ignorance (don't reply on this), but what is a MUD? a Multi-User-Drum, a Main-United-Database, or what?

    Everquest is a MUD
    Ultima Online is a MUD
    Anarchy Online is a MUD
    Diablo Battle.net is kinda a MUD

    Multi-User-Dungeons

    Originally it was just a few people in a dungeon, but has come to expand and cover lots of world with thousands of players.
    There are still some of the more original text based MUDs around, the themes vary but most are fantasy role playing or science fiction based.
