Or make the commands available for LVL_IMPL+1 :)

That effectively denies its existence..:)

I think he meant something like "zreset zone#", although when you do that
you are effectively rebooting the zone it is done from the copy in memory,
not reading from the file.

Both included in OLC+, AFAIK.

I still don't understand what's the advantage of having interpreter.c

The only advantage of mobprogs, that I can see, is that they are linked to

usual, and it'd be as much a pain changing a stock one as adding my own
(probably, at least).
