so far i managed to put in the hedit in oasis2.0 for bpl21 with success. of
course there is only one problem which is why i paste it here :). my hedit
can only create NEW helps but if i try to edit and save the EXISTING ones
it will crash. i dont know why help_table[rnum] = *OLC_HELP(d) wont work.
if there is a solution to this then perhaps i can put out a new modified
snippet of hedit for bpl21 oasis at least.

the gdb output....

here lies the problem which i cant find

void hedit_save_internally(struct descriptor_data *d)
  int i, rnum;
  struct help_index_element *new_help_table;

  rnum = OLC_ZNUM(d);

   * Help entry exists exists: free and replace it.
  if (rnum > 0) {
     mudlog(CMP, LVL_BUILDER, TRUE, "free help");
     mudlog(CMP, LVL_BUILDER, TRUE, "help freed");
     mudlog(CMP, LVL_BUILDER, TRUE, "creating new help table: transfering
help table\n");
     mudlog(CMP, LVL_BUILDER, TRUE, "rnum is %d saving %s", rnum, *OLC_HELP
    help_table[rnum] = *OLC_HELP(d);
     mudlog(CMP, LVL_BUILDER, TRUE, "help table CREATED!!\n");
  } else {   /* Entry doesn't exist, hafta add it. */
    CREATE(new_help_table, struct help_index_element, top_of_helpt + 2);

     * Insert new entry at the top - why not?

    new_help_table[0] = *(OLC_HELP(d));

     * Count through help table.
    for (i = 0; i <= top_of_helpt; i++)
      new_help_table[i + 1] = help_table[i];

     * Copy help table over to new one.
    help_table = new_help_table;
