Line Editor - the horrendous line editor
The default in-game editor for board posts and mail messages is known as the "menu editor". It has the following commands available:
I - Insert lines. This command prompts you for a line number and starts inserting text before it in the text. Type ** on a blank line to stop inserting.
D - Delete lines. You enter one line or a range of lines to be deleted
L - List all the lines you have entered
M - Modify text. Allows you to modify text over one or a range of lines. It asks for a piece of text and replaces every occurrence of that with the new string in all the lines you specify. Ranges are specified by begin..end; ie 1..2 or 3..4
C - Continue editing. This is basically the same as inserting onto the end of the text.
E - Enter ed. This enters the line editor that some of you love to hate. Use with caution. Has been known to burn.
S - Quit the editor and save all the changes
Q - Quit the editor and abandon any changes
H - Gives you this file
If you don't like this editor, there is an alternative. Try typing 'editor magic'. To return to the default editor, type 'editor menu'.
