Overview

KildClient 2.11.0
-----------------

KildClient is a MUD client using the GTK toolkit. Its main feature is
the support for Perl scripting, which allows you to do basically
whatever you want. Other standard features of mud clients (triggers,
gags, macros, etc.) are also supported. See the features page for a
more detailed list of features.

Installation follows the standard procedure:

./configure
make
make install

After that, run with the `kildclient' command.

Several libraries are required in order to use KildClient. Here is a
list:
- gtk+ 2.16.x
- libperl

Note that some of those have further dependencies, which need to be
installed also. If you need to compile the client, you'll need the
development files in addition to the runtime files (if your
distribution uses packages, look for packages ending in -dev).

You might want the gtkspell library also. It is not necessary, but if
found you can have spell checking in the client.

You also need the Locale::Gettext Perl Module.

For documentation, see the KildClient manual, which should be
installed in {prefix}/share/doc/kildclient. {prefix} if by default
/usr/local, but it can be changed via configure.


SSL Support
-----------

KildClient has the hability to connect to muds securily via SSL (for
servers that support it, naturally). To build a SSL-enabled
KildClient, you need the gnutls library, version 1.X.

The configure script will search for it. If the library is found,
SSL support will be enabled. If it is not found, the built KildClient
will not have that feature.

You can always disable that feature by passing the --without-libgnutls
option to the configure script.


KildClient and gtk2-perl
------------------------

If you have the gtk2-perl bindings, you can use plugins that make use
of the GTK+ library.

It is not necessary to have gtk2-perl installed, but if you have,
you'll be able to use a greater range of plugins. Some standard
plugins distributed with KildClient (such as the notes plugin) use it,
and so may some third-party ones.


Building from CVS
-----------------

If you have a copy of KildClient that comes from the CVS repository
(and not a tarball that you downloaded), the building process is more
complicated. You must first run the autogen.sh script, and then
proceed with the configure script.

However, you will need some extra tools: automake, autoconf,
glib-gettextize (part of glib, which is in turn used by gtk) and
intltool. You will also need the development files of the libraries
used by KildClient.
