LOCAL EDITOR, MUME REMOTE EDITING PROTOCOL
The MUME remote editing protocol is a mechanism that allows users to edit files on their local machines, as opposed to using the standard line editor.
RequirementsUse of the protocol requires a special MUME-aware client to receive the files and launch your favorite editor on your local machine.
Notable clients that support the protocol
- powwow — Unix/Windows/Mac command line client (from the early 90s)
- powtty — Windows port of powwow using putty (from the late 90s)

Note for client implementorsThe source code for the powwow client contains the defacto reference implementation protocol; the powwow source is available for download on the MUME website.
