NAME

Anarres::Mud::Driver - A game driver for LP Muds.

SYNOPSIS

  use Anarres::Mud::Driver;

DESCRIPTION

This is an EXPERIMENTAL LP Mud driver written in Perl. The principle is to parse the LPC as would a traditional driver, build and typecheck a parse tree, then generate Perl source code from the parse tree. More traditional drivers would here generate and interpret bytecode.

Generated Perl code is in a package namespace generated from the LPC filename of the object to be compiled.

This program contains some interesting curiosities, such as an emulation for a full 'C' style switch statement in Perl.

USAGE

The system is developer only, execute the file test.pl in the Driver subdirectory to test the system. Please note that the file 'parsetree' is a serialised parse tree on disk, since Yapp is very slow (it takes about 3 minutes to parse my test source file).

BUGS

Incomplete. Experimental. Probably broken.

SUPPORT

Speak to Arren on the Anarres II LP mud (telnet mudlib.anarres.org 5000)
