I grabbed that editor (assuming it was circ-old.tar.gz that you sent) and 
installed it without any [apparent ;] bugs.  I decided to edit room #3059 
since it was relatively sparse.  The editor definitely has potential; 
something I would be interested in installing would be a 'maximum 
specification', such that "max" would use the topmost room/object/etc, 
"new" would create a new room/object/etc, and so forth.

I'm considering writing an editor for MSDOS, since my C experience hasn't 
reached the level required for this type of project; I'd end up writing 
it in Turbo Pascal.  Once I get the C knowledge I'll want to have it 
running on Unix.  <cross fingers>
