Make sure that room 1000 really exists (and loads) in the lib dir that you
use when you execute the bin/circle file, or it will most certainly crash
when you try to enter the game.

Look up abbreviation code on the developer site. (Prolly in utils)

It is in objsave.c I think (I hope that file is stock, or the laugh is on me)

I recommend you use either grep:
grep -n "rent" *.[ch]
Or an application like MSVC or EditPlus, that has the capability to search
in files.
Would work by just using the internal search in some Windows versions as well.

Kind regards,
