Title: LPC For Dummies, Second Edition
Post by: drakkos on April 10, 2009, 05:29:24 AM
Hola!

Because the old version of LPC for Dummies was getting a bit dog-eared and ratty, I have written an update, and an expansion, and a pair of related (but not core) materials on MUD development. 

You'll find them all at http://www.monkeys-at-keyboards.com/ (hosted externally so as to not stress the Discworld server with many large downloads). 

The material is, of course, very Discworld MUD specific - bits of it may require an updated mudlib to function properly (but there shouldn't be many of these). 

I would appreciate any comments, requests or such that people would have - they are still in a moderately early draft form and there's plenty I'm sure that remains to be improved.  There are some forums set up at http://monkeys-at-keyboards.com/forums/ for the discussion.

Regards,
Drakkos

Wow! This is GREAT!


I didn't know about a first edition, so not sure how to really compare it or any real criticisms, but I just wanted to say thanks and it looks absolutely fantastic!

Hi guys - thanks for the comments, they're much appreciated.  :-D

I've made the source-code available too (because I forgot to do that).  If you wanted to see the original first edition (from way back in 2000 or so), it's here:

Thanks again,

Nicely put together, fun way of writing, good setup.

Definately some reading material for my lonely hours.

Monkey says "two thumbs up!".  :D
