Notepad

MUSHclient has an internal notepad editor (similar to the Windows Notepad program).

This is useful for working on things whilst mudding. For example, you could type in a lengthy room description into a notepad window.

The notepad also lets you do useful conversions, like Unix to DOS, Base-64 encode/decode, quote forum codes, convert/unconvert HTML special characters.

You can also do find-and-replace.

There is a "bracket matcher" for finding the matching parenthesis in C code, or MUSHcode. This is configurable.
