        Yep, cept... I don't believe the source code has ever been

Q: Will you release the source for the editor?

A: No, and most people couldn't use it anyway. CircEdit was written using
Delphi, which uses Visual/Object Pascal as its programming language. The
source code is not extremely neat in places, mainly due to my producing
WORKING code rather than producing elegant code. (Not that I think
anything in Pascal is particularly elegant...) Not releasing source also
means people can't rip out your name and put theirs on it instead (this
seems to be a problem with MUDs). Actually, that's not strictly true, one
can always use a sector editor to change the binary executable...
Unfortunately, there are a lot of unscrupulous people in the MUD world.
