MUCK supports two online programming languages, MPI and Muck FORTH, or MUF. MPI is an interpretted language (you don't need to compile it; the server reads the code directly) available to all players. MUF is a compiled, stack-based language, available to players who have a Mucker bit (an M flag). In general, MPI is better for one-off programming tasks and customizing messages (descriptions, exit @osucc's, etc.). MUF is better for public utilities and tasks that involve modifying the database.

The following sections describe both MPI and MUF in greater detail.
