I realize that.  I had a friend put in extra exits
for me, and he used the patch syntax described in
the FAQ.  The problematic thing was that even though
he only made a few mods to redit.c and oasis.c, it
put minus signs for the WHOLE file, and added the whole
file back was HUGE...That's why i asked the
question, despite it being in the FAQ.
