No, this is in process_input.  The information that the player is sending 
to the mud.  If they are less than LVL_IMMORT, it strips out all the 
codes from their "input".  However, any color codes that are put in by 
gods, or are in the game, are processed by the call to proc_color in 
process_output, sending the color codes to the players properly.

Does anyone ever read documentation anymore?  People ask this question
all the time but the answer can be quite easily found by reading a short
text file.

There is a file called README.WIN distributed with Circle that tells you
to use the files and for Windows.
