   I've ported the "fixed ascii pfiles" jive to windoze.  The only portability
issue that I ran into (at least, that I can remember:P) is the diskio.c.
Personally, I think the idea of integrating file-buffering *beta* software
into a patch that most MUDs are going to want was half-baked.  Anyway...
here's my portable version of diskio.c.
