Implement an EX_SECRET flag.  But beware, CircleMUD has a fool
way of dealing with exits in the player files so you'll need to
go playing in db.c a bit (go into setup_dir() and find where it

  if (t[0] == 1)
    world[room].dir_option[dir]->exit_info = EX_ISDOOR;
  else if (t[0] == 2)
    world[room].dir_option[dir]->exit_info = EX_ISDOOR | EX_PICKPROOF;
    world[room].dir_option[dir]->exit_info = 0;

And right before the 'else' do:

  else if (t[0] == 3)
    world[room].dir_option[dir]->exit_info = EX_ISDOOR | EX_SECRET;
  else if (t[0] == 4)
    world[room].dir_option[dir]->exit_info = EX_ISDOOR | EX_SECRET |

which will get it to load, etc.)  After you do that you'll need
to go about into act.informative.c and wherever it displays the
exits (the autoexit routine, do_exits, etc.) set it up to not
display rooms that are set EX_SECRET.

While we're speaking of the fool way exits are set up, why ARE
they setup that way!?  It's extremely annoying, if nothing else.
