        If you're talking about "editing whole areas" - as per your
original message, then I don't see the problem.  You claim to have already
been able to do that.  If you're just wanting a single command - how to
generate a new area, just try using "zedit new <zonenumber>".  You should
have just asked "How do I create a new zone in Oasis OLC?"

        Looking through the documentation which actually comes with the
Oasis package (ie, the Oasis.readme file), i see something like this in
part 7 (Using OasisOLC):

Here's how all the commands for the OLC system are used:


zedit                           - edit the zone info for the room you are
                                   standing in
zedit <virtual room num>        - edit the zone info for that room
zedit save <zone>               - save all the zone info for that zone to
zedit new <one>                 - IMPLs only - create a new zone.

        So, next time, look a bit harder, and when you can't find it, be
more specific about your problems so people can actually help.
