The MUDDL programming language, "Multi User Dungeon Definition Language", is a domain-specific language for creation of text-based multi-user virtual worlds, i.e. MUDs. The first version of it was written by Richard Bartle and Roy Trubshaw in BCPL; it was later ported to C++ by Viktor Toth.[1] It was originally used to implement MUD1, and was later used for a number of other MUDs, such as MIST.[2]

In a 9-day programming blitz over Christmas, he rewrote the BCPL MUDDL engine in C++ and opened it up alongside MUD2. The ex-CompuServe players gravitated there, where it now runs as a direct continuation of the defunct original BL incarnation."
