1 A big *Thanks* Afisal, I will try those archives but they look *big*.
2. The trains.c is a file that according to the help file will:- quote
------------snip start--------------
"With this code, you'll be able to add a complete transporter/train
 to your CircleMUD, including a token machine & conductor, and
 2 trains running simultaneously. The transporters are perfect for
newbies, because they can use the transporters to get places
 quickly and easily."
------------snip stop--------------
I have got ideas to change this to make a sort of desert caravan
 that will go between different areas on my mud, another
place in the help file goes
------------snip start--------------
"First, edit your makefile so that it compiles trains.c and includes it
when everything is linked to make /bin/circle."
------------snip stop--------------
What i need to know is: can anybody
give me any help on where i can read how to
add trains.c to my makefile.in

P.S. I didnt get/see DAK`s email you mentioned!
