 Actually i must bag to differ i found that a program called AcidDraw is
much easier and better to use then file another easy one to
use is the ansi editor that comes with pcboard.

 which comes a thought to mind is there a program out there which you can
make gif and jpg files as apart of a welcome screen to mud?
and in the config.h file how would i expand the line:
               Your mud name here?
and the menu set, how are is it to display color codes in that?
 i have tried including screen.h and color.c but it doesnt seem to
reconize the coding for my color?
