[04-19 22:14][Chat]A gang of rogues rob the Kieron bank!
[04-19 22:46][Chat]Rmp: I had an idea for a change to a core util ported from linux
[04-19 22:46][Chat]Icewolfz: ?
[04-19 22:47][Chat]Rmp: the more prompt when you are paginating a list, like your inventory.
[04-19 22:47][Chat]Icewolfz: what about the more prompt?
[04-19 22:48][Chat]Rmp: possibles someway that when you get the MORE prompt that after a setenv # of seconds, it sends a return
[04-19 22:48][Chat]Icewolfz: not relaly posisble with how the more system works
[04-19 22:48][Chat]Icewolfz: it requires input from the user
[04-19 22:48][Chat]Rmp: basically clearing the prompt after a set # of seconds
[04-19 22:48][Chat]Icewolfz: uses a wait command that requires data from remote
[04-19 22:49][Chat]Icewolfz: and there is no local way to send input to that system
[04-19 22:49][Chat]Icewolfz: use the input_to system
[04-19 22:49][Chat]Icewolfz: which causes the driver t wait for remote input
[04-19 22:49][Chat]Rmp: I think its possible given how it works that the the loop could close after X milliseconds. Probably not even displaying the rest of the list.
[04-19 22:49][Chat]Icewolfz: it doenst work on aloop
[04-19 22:49][Chat]Icewolfz: mud litterly sits and waits for user input
[04-19 22:49][Chat]Perno: it works on a slope!
[04-19 22:49][Chat]Icewolfz: there is no way ti intperrupt that
[04-19 22:50][Chat]Icewolfz: the most one can do is a clietn trigger
[04-19 22:50][Chat]Rmp: so could you add a feature to jiMUD do do that instead?
