Trying to gag several successive lines

I've run into an issue in a MUD that has me spammed by unwanted messages. By the time this topic receives an answer the MUD's staff will most likely have solved the issue, but I ask anyway because I find it an interesting technical question. I have already defined regular expressions for the first a...

Re: $world->send doesn't run the alias engine. What can I do?

Argh, thanks! I really should have searched the word "alias" on the "$world reference" page.

$world->send doesn't run the alias engine. What can I do?

I understand that it's its intended behavior, but $world->send not running what it sends through the aliases engine makes it a nightmare for me to develop a script I need.
Is there an alternative way to do it that I missed in the documentation?

Scrolling bug in channels plugin

The channels plugin doesn't scroll down when its associated screen is full. It's certainly a behavior nobody would want, so I have to suppose it's a bug. Maybe something changed with the KCWin plugin that channels doesn't take into account? Anyway, I don't know where to contact the author to have it...

Re: Display refresh goes a-wonky

The bug report I mentioned previously was apparently about a different issue. But I have noticed something: the problem starts when the scrollback buffer is full. So for now the workaround I have is to set the number of lines to a high number, and restart KildClient now and then.

Re: Display refresh goes a-wonky

Actually, I was wrong, the issue didn't go away, it took longer to manifest itself. After some research, I found it reported on Debian bug report log (that, for some reason, seems to be blacklisted by the forum) under number #772096. It's an issue with GTK+, it would seem. Some workarounds are offer...

Re: Display refresh goes a-wonky

Okay, I've got something new. I removed (actually, moved) my .kildclient config directory and started afresh: the problem disappeared. So obviously it's an issue about my configuration.

I'll run some tests now and then to find out where it all comes from.

Display refresh goes a-wonky

KildClient has been my favorite (well, only) MUD client for years, in fact from the very beginning of my playing MUDs. I picked it because I'm well-learned in Perl, which makes me feel empowered for handling aliases, macros, triggers, etc. But now I'm frustrated, because the output area goes weird a...
