I'm not sure quite what form of this question you're asking, but if you just 
want to do somehting by hand, the easiest way is just to get a copy of 
TinyFugue, set it up on your local system, and use its /quote command (gives a
much nicer interface to the MOO also).  TF can be obtained from in the pub/mud/clients directory..

FUP takes a significant bit more hackery to set up, but of course is much more
flexible if you're doing a lot of file IO or want to have the MOO able to do 
everything itself (FUP is a patch to the MOO server which adds builtins for 
reading/writing to the filesystem). You can obtain FUP from in the /pub/software/MOOsupport/FUP directory, if I
remember correctly.
