The ShadowMUD supports several different sets of escape sequences
for maximum compatibility with the various terminal emulations out there.
Most terminal emulations (vt100) for example either use the full ansi
escape sequences or the sequences for bolding. ShadowMUD supports the
following escape sequence protocols:
ansi - enable standard ansi colors, see help color
xterm - enable xterm 256 color support
mxp - force the use of MXP color tag to emulate 256 xterm colors
unknown (this is default, for non-color terminals)
Use the <setenv> command to set your terminal protocol.
Check <help color> to see how to say things in color.
Note that many mud clients use escape sequences, and therefore may become
confused by certain terminal types. 'unknown' will never mess up.
By default ShadowMUD will attempt to auto detect your termial settings
and turn on or off different features based on that detection, you can
force the mud to not do that and lock your terminal type using
<setenv termlock true> and what ever setting you have
in in setenv term will always be used from that point on.
