I haven't seen any mention of a faq for this mailing list, if there truly
isn't one, we definately need to get one together...  I have seen several
people who have mentioned compiling circle-related faqs.  We need an
official set of rules for this mailing list, and it would be very nice to
have a circle-mud faq maintained by this mailing list, similar to what
many usenet groups do.  The rule faq should be posted to the mailing list
on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, as well as to all new subscribers to the
list (the bandwidth it takes would be miniscule wrt the number of posts

    answered in any beginning C textbook.

  The circlemud mailing list can be subscribed to by sending a message to

  Beginning C questions can be answered in any number of books, including
  'The C Programming Language' by Kernigham and Ritchie.

  The circlemud mailing list faq can be found at: ftp://  , and
