I don't know how I'd do that in zmud, to be honest. You'd want to...

1. make an alias
2. figure out how to implement a for function in zmud (help files!)
3. figure out how to implement a delay (then do this) function in zmud. They might call it a Timer. You might not need a for loop if you can configure a timer's number of iterations. (help files!)

Go exploring, see what you can find. Exploring help files and configurations is just as fruitful as exploring Pyrathia, I believe.


If this is legal, let me know and I'll post the answer in the Legal Zmud Scripts thread.

A timer that alerts the user of something to do at a certain time, should be fine. A timer that sends something to the MUD at a later date, is very probably not fine.

---

The code grep posted, I believe is used for two main aims:
1. rate-limit commands being sent to the mud by a user (so they aren't disconnected)
2. batch a group of commands being sent to the MUD (repetition).

Rather than using a timer to automate the command-sending, I'd encourage using the very easy repetition command and doing the work in blocks.

Something like:

Code:
#ALIAS BATCH {
   #VAR command {"give berry fred"}
   #VAR batch-counter {10}
   #IF (@item-count < 1) {
      #SAY None left.
   }
   #IF (@item-count < 10) {#VAR batch-counter @item-count}
   #@batch-counter @command
   #ADD @item-count {-@batch-counter}
}

(just off the top of my head - I didn't use zmud to verify the syntax above)

I don't see anything in grep's psudeo code that limits inputs (however thats a good idea) only preforms a loop and a timer. The code for which would be:
Code:
#10 {give berry fred;#wait 10000}
which would result in 10 iterations of the two commands in the {} separated by the ;
    give berry fred
    #wait 10000
and #wait is the number of milliseconds of delay (10 full seconds)
