powwow is a client program, which replaces telnet for the lazy mudder who wants some (only some?) extra features. It is primarily designed for DikuMUDs, but nothing prevents its use for other types of muds. powwow is based on another client, cancan, and cancan was originally inspired by tintin (yet another client) by Peter Unold (pjunold@daimi.aau.dk), but is entirely re-written. powwow also implements the MUME remote editing protocol, which enables you to edit texts on the mud using your own favourite editor, several texts at once if you have a windowing terminal.
powwow was written and maintained by Massimiliano Ghilardi and moved here in March of 2005. The original powwow home page is mirrored here if you need an older version or an older binary compiled for another platform.
There is currently a perl plugin and a javascript plugin based on spidermonkey.
