Re: MOO for PCs? -Reply

Greetings and salutations.  I would like to experiment with the
DOSMOO stuff as well.  I d/l-ed the zip file and tried to kick it
into gear and things got weird.  I don't have linux as of yet (try
not to kick sand at the newbie scum) and would like to try my hand at
starting up a MOO.  I am limited to using DOS/Windows stuff at work
and home until I can get a bigger HD to put linux on (and that is a
year or so in the offing).   Any suggestions to get this up and
running would be highly appreciated.

Entry at prompt...

C:\MOO>msdosmoo.exe input-db dump-db

the response was this...

STARTING: Version 1.7.8p4 of LambdaMOO server
          (Using single-user protocol)
          (Task timeouts measured in wall-clock seconds.)
LOADING: input-db
*** Cannot open database file: input-db

here are the entire contents of the directory where I unzipped it
(including the zipped file) and the bytes they take up:

Thanks in

Yes, there is a DOS MOO available at: 
I haven't tested it, so I can't vouch for if it works or not, so if
you try it  out let me know!
