The pei (Perl Empire Interface) client is now being completely
rewritten. This is the first release, version 3.0.0 .

It doesn't have most of pei2.9 features, especially its neat tools.
In functionality it barely exceeds the basic emp_client.

BUT! It finally combines asynchronous connection together with readline
capabilities!

And it is now based on Empire.pm module which is the base of major
tool framework and potential GUI.

The popular mapper program has also been changed to fit the new Empire.pm
conception.

Get the pei, mapper and Empire.pm packages from
http://empire.tau.ac.il/~romm/emp/

Empire.pm has also been released on CPAN (Comprehensive Perl Archive Network)

http://search.cpan.org/~romm/Empire-0.121/

Now the work on pei will concentrate on recreating the nice tools pei2.9.3
provided.

Enjoy,

Roman aka V.I.Ulianov(Lenin)

Interesting,

I've been working on the same thing (on and off) I actually had a perl/tk
empire gui near completion before the great dot com nose dive several years
ago (lost due to my own stupidity) Are you developing it on a unix or
MS-Dos based machine, if its on an ms-dos machine how are you working around
the tk file-event issues?

This is a great game, but a more complete and appealing PYTHON or PERL GUI
is a necessity. Basically, as neat as this game is, I would write it's
future off without WinACE. We need "Dr. Python" to step forward and come
up with a good looking GUI, or a at least one that is usable.

My 2 cents, Kelly

If you're following up a message, top-posting is discouraged.

If you prefer Python over Perl it is ok, and you can help Laurent with
PTKei.

Sorry to the top posting, wasn't sure what people used. Haven't used NEWS
that much in recent years. I'm a UNIX Admin too, but not in your classing
of coding. More into servers, systems, and such in recent years. I'm
pecking away at PTKei but am continually frustrated by the sparse
interface. I'm learning how to not use one so I can "backdoor" into using
PTKei.

ps -ef | grep PTKei > frustration.interface

Thanks, Kelly
