I've made mine available:

Files of therein:

About dgscripts-0.99pl7.cvs2002062116.patch.gz:

This is a work in progress. Should patch cleanly against CircleMUD
CVS snapshot 2002062116 after applying my OasisOLC CVS patch. There
*are* bugs. You *will* crash the MUD. It probably *will* corrupt
data files. Your computer *could* explode in a giant ball of flame.
Do not hold me responsible. If you want to send a patch or otherwise
suggest a fix to The Fungi <> please do so. It
compiles for me on Debian Sid/i386 at the time of writing, but I can
easily crash it through trigedit. This is not a "working" patch in
any way. At present it is merely of academic interest...

The transcript:

   > trigedit 1
   Trigger Editor [1]

   1) Name         : memory test trigger
   2) Intended for : Mobiles
   3) Trigger types: Memory
   4) Numberic Arg : 100
   5) Arguments    :
   6) Commands:
   * assign this to a mob, force the mob to mremember you, then enter the
   * room the mob is in while visible (not via goto)
   say I remember you,!

   Q) Quit
   Enter Choice :q
   > trigedit 2
   Connection closed by foreign host.

The stdout:

   Jun 27 17:50:57 :: Boot db -- DONE.

   circle: ../sysdeps/generic/printf_fphex.c:163: __printf_fphex:
      Assertion `*decimal != '\0' && decimalwc != L'\0'' failed.

I will troubleshoot this one when I get home tonight. Suggestions
welcome but don't spend too much time on it. And it is almost
definitely something stupid on my part...
