I'm familiar with Ronnie Wikh's textbook and with Jehuda's site, and with a variety of similar easy-to-find sites with LPC docs. So it's not that I think there's none on the web.

No, my question is: what LPC documentation have people here tried and personally found useful? Is there a better source, especially for an LPC beginner, than Ronnie Wikh's book?

i haven't found much in the way of documentation other than the man pages that come with the mudlib distros or the school docs that came with tmi2. i'm not sure what 'books' you're talking about, but there's there basic and intermediate documentation on LPC that's fairly handy to give a look over. but i found the best 'documentation' was the source code of the different objects in different mudlibs. not that they were wonderfully commented, but using what you know from the above information you can go through different objects and try to see if you understand what's going on. it'll be hard and rough at first. i recommend the easier objects like rooms. go through the rooms and read them and then read the base inheritible for rooms (depending on the mudlib this will be in a different location and be called something different).

the difficulty with finding 'LPC' documentation is that it is very specific to the particular functions and doesn't give you actual implementation help and the only way to find implementation is to go through existing mudlibs

Actually, I'm already pretty good with LPC. Ronnie Wikh's book is a lot better than the standard Descartes-of-Borg beginner and intermediate tutorial that I assume you mean.

I'm in the process of rewriting Ronnie Wikh's book for DGD now, and I wanted to see if there were any other docs I should really look at. Sounds like there aren't, since I'm already familiar with the Descartes-of-Borg stuff.
