CODE request: Text Editor

From: David A. Carver (
Date: 06/20/96

I want to change the editor (if you can call it that) in circle that is 
used to write messages, mail, notes to boards, etc.  I have traced it down 
to a call in comm.c for d->str and then a call to string_add in modify.c.  
What I'm really looking for is some example code of how some of you made 
the editor a little more robust.  I have a general idea of what I want 
to do, but was wondering how some of you have done it.  My idea was to 
allow the player after typing @ on a line to relist and then edit and 
insert items based on line numbers.  I just want to be able to fix errors 
and do some basic text editing after creating the line and before saving 

Any ideas or examples would be appreciated.
