Hello! Me again!
I saw another MUD with a very helpfull option for those who use the old telnet program.
Imagine a big text, of skill's screen, for example: that whole thing doesn't fit the telnet's small screen, right?
So it shows the first lines and an option to continue to the next lines. Something like the command "dir/c" in DOS.

Is that function already in the code?
If it isn't, how do I "explain" smaug that the screen is full of text and it needs to be stoped?

I promisse it's my last dumb question here this week! =D

Thanks everyone in advance!

It is already in the code, you just need to do "config +pager" in-game to activate it for your character, though you also might want to do pager <#> as well to set the number of lines you want it to pause after, I believe default is 24 if you don't.

Come test your mettle in the Land of Legends at telnet://tcdbbs.zapto.org:4000
or, for a little family oriented medieval fun, come join us at The Castle's Dungeon BBS at telnet://tcdbbs.zapto.org
or, if you just want information about either, check our web page at http://tcdbbs.zapto.org
