First off I'd better start off by saying that I'm not the one who=20
designs or implements the code, database, or web stuff on our MUD.
I mostly do world design and come up with ideas.  Anyhow as far as I
know the web side of the MySQL database is interfaced via perl =
scripting.

Many of the maintnance functions are also handled with perl which is
our head coder's forte.  As far as I know the MUD end of the
interface is done with the C++ code, but as I said I really don't
know that many specifics here.  I mostly just use the web side of
things and if I need to make any large scale changes to the data or
add a new field to be coded in I use the mysqlfront utility which is
very handy.

I'm not entirely sure here, I'll forward this on to the fellow who
codes this part of the MUD and get back to you on it.
