This is all fine and dandy, but this program would have two purposes in
1. setting an object's wizard bit
2. programming $sys:server_started, and adding it if necessary.
Any and all other manlipuliations should be done from within the
LambdaMOO server, since that is the best db editor that there is. The
program you mention would ideally only be used in the above two cases,
because if you can't fix some problem with the db using the above two
cases, then you shouldn't be messing with the db file anyway.
On the Dos MOO memory thing, you shouldn't be running a MOO, even a
single user MOO, on a machine that has less than 12 megs of memory, IMO.
