View list of data type meanings


This sends the specified text to the world. It is like typing it into the command window.

A newline character is appended to the text you supply, as MUD commands normally are terminated with a newline.

The text may include imbedded newlines.

If the text has a trailing newline it is removed. In other words, text with a trailing newline will not end up with two newlines when sent to the MUD.

* If "echo" is true, the command will be echoed in the output window.

* If "queue" is true, the command will be queued (after any other pending commands), otherwise it will be sent immediately

* If "log" is true, the command will be logged to the log file, if one is open, and logging commands is enabled.

* If "history" is true the command will be added to the command history buffer.

Note: Available in version 4.14 onwards.
