Version 4.55 of MUSHclient has a new feature, intended to help us on the forum solve difficulties with problematic situations.

To use it, type into the Immediate scripting window (with scripting active and Lua as the script language):


Debug ("summary")


The syntax would be similar for other languages.

A summary of the world information is dumped to the output window, for example:


-------------- MUSHclient summary --------------

This lets us see things like:

  • Operating system
  • Library version (eg. PNG)
  • Count of triggers, aliases, timers
  • How many triggers, aliases, timers were enabled, and how many fired
  • Summary of installed plugins and whether enabled or not
  • What scripting language is in use, and if enabled
  • Counts of bytes sent and received
  • Some timing information

Improvements are:


  • Addition of miniwindow summary (quite handy to see how many of them you have)
  • Count of accelerators
  • Count of telnet negotiation things
  • Details about output window (size, characters)
  • World name and ID

To make it easy for players who may not be comfortable with typing script commands, you can install this plugin:

Template:saveplugin=Summary To save and install the Summary plugin do this:
  1. Copy between the lines below (to the Clipboard)
  2. Open a text editor (such as Notepad) and paste the plugin into it
  3. Save to disk on your PC, preferably in your plugins directory, as Summary.xml
  4. Go to the MUSHclient File menu -> Plugins
  5. Click "Add"
  6. Choose the file Summary.xml (which you just saved in step 3) as a plugin
  7. Click "Close"



<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE muclient>

<muclient>
<plugin
   name="Summary"
   author="Nick Gammon"
   id="71a90acddb14f784437b8b80"
   language="Lua"
   purpose="Provides a system summary you can post into a forum message"
   date_written="2010-07-22 07:29:52"
   requires="4.55"
   version="1.0"
   >
<description trim="y">
Type "summary" to use.
</description>

</plugin>

<aliases>
  <alias
   match="summary"
   enabled="y"
   send_to="12"
   sequence="100"
  >
  <send>Debug "summary"</send>
  </alias>
</aliases>

</muclient>


Then type "summary" to get your system summary.

This plugin is now in the base distribution for MUSHclient 4.55 onwards. So if you need to get summary information from a player, just get them to use the File menu -> Plugins, to install it from the plugins directory.

Another new feature in version 4.56 is the addition of various hyperlinks to the summary output, which if clicked on can drill down into more detail. For example:


-- Triggers, aliases, timers, variables --
** Triggers: 5 in world file, triggers enabled: yes. [Triggers]
   4 enabled, 2 regexp, 0 attempts, 0 matched, 0.000000 seconds.
** Aliases: 26 in world file, aliases enabled: yes. [Aliases]
   25 enabled, 0 regexp, 0 attempts, 0 matched, 0.000000 seconds.
** Timers: 6 in world file, timers enabled: NO. [Timers]
   6 enabled, 0 fired.
   Timers checked every 0.1 seconds.
** Variables: 7. [Variables]
-- MCCP --
MCCP not active.
-- Plugins --
ID: a2af5216d68563401888e01e, 'Health_Bar',  Enabled [Tr Al Ti Va]
ID: 48062dcd6b968c590df50f32, 'Health_Bar_Miniwindow', DISABLED [Tr Al Ti Va]
ID: 71a90acddb14f784437b8b80, 'Summary',  Enabled [Tr Al Ti Va]
** Plugins: 3 loaded, 2 enabled.


Clicking on Triggers shows something like this:


------ Trigger List (evaluation order) ------

  1. Normal,  Enabled : *trigger1      HINT: *
  2. Normal,  Enabled : *trigger3      Jerirath now follows you.
  3. Normal,  Enabled : *trigger5      Koaldan now follows you.
  4. Regexp,  Enabled : *trigger7      ^AUCTION\:\s*(.*?)\s*has put(\s*(.*...
  5. Regexp, DISABLED : foo            northward


And then you can click on the individual trigger names to have the XML data for that trigger displayed.

This is handy in various ways, as you can quickly see a summary of what you have installed in the world file (and in plugins). You also see the trigger and alias evaluation orders.

And then if I click on *trigger1 I see this, which shows the XML for *trigger1 and some internal details (like how many times it has matched so far):


------ Trigger: *trigger1 ------

  <trigger
   enabled="y"
   match="HINT: *"
   script="show_hint"
   sequence="100"
  >
  </trigger>

         Matched count: 1
            Has script: Yes
   Times script called: 1
     When last matched: 08:10:03
               Send to: world
             Temporary: No
         Time to match: 0.000233
        Match attempts: 84


The name "*trigger1" is the internal name assigned to this unlabelled trigger. This name can be used in the trigger manipulation functions (eg. GetTriggerInfo). However it is easier to give triggers, aliases and timers a name yourself if you are planning to refer to them in scripts, then you get a known name, and the name can be more descriptive.

To help with debugging telnet negotiations, version 4.57 now lists the telnet negotiations most recently entered into, like this:


------ Telnet negotiation List (numeric order) ------

  1 (Echo)
     Got:  DO:   no , DONT: no , WILL: yes, WONT: yes 
     Sent: WILL: no , WONT: no , DO:   no , DONT: no  
 24 (Termtype)
     Got:  DO:   yes, DONT: no , WILL: no , WONT: no  
     Sent: WILL: yes, WONT: no , DO:   no , DONT: no  
 31 (Window Size (NAWS))
     Got:  DO:   yes, DONT: no , WILL: no , WONT: no  
     Sent: WILL: yes, WONT: no , DO:   no , DONT: no  
 85 (MCCP1)
     Got:  DO:   no , DONT: no , WILL: yes, WONT: no  
     Sent: WILL: no , WONT: no , DO:   no , DONT: yes 
 86 (MCCP2)
     Got:  DO:   no , DONT: no , WILL: yes, WONT: no  
     Sent: WILL: no , WONT: no , DO:   yes, DONT: no  
102 (Aardwolf)
     Got:  DO:   yes, DONT: no , WILL: yes, WONT: no  
     Sent: WILL: yes, WONT: no , DO:   yes, DONT: no  
200 (ATCP)
     Got:  DO:   no , DONT: no , WILL: yes, WONT: no  
     Sent: WILL: no , WONT: no , DO:   yes, DONT: no  


We can see, for example, that MCCP1 asked us if we would do it (WILL) but we replied DONT.

However for MCCP2 we got a WILL and replied DO.

Also ATCP sent WILL and we replied DO.

The "sent" ones only apply to negotiations automatically sent. If you happen to send one with SendPkt (send packet) it won't be detected because it doesn't scan every outgoing packet. It only notes when it automatically replies to an incoming DO/DONT/WILL/WONT.
