I don't quite understand why the article says to modify the files. Couldn't they simply be run with bourne shell? Or is there some subtlety I'm missing? --Elronnd (talk) 05:20, 9 April 2015 (UTC)Elronnd

The uunet link seems to be down, but it appears that there's a (partial?) mirror of ftp.uu.net at http://ftp.sunet.se/pub/usenet/ftp.uu.net/comp.sources.games. Editing accordingly. --Elronnd (talk) 05:10, 9 April 2015 (UTC)Elronnd


It seems like the "stub" category doesn't really fit this page.

There's a stub template in the section "Editing the patch for a modern shell," requesting information on doing a necessary edit on editors other than vi. I suppose there ought to be a distinct stub-section template as there is on Wikipedia.--Ray Chason 20:08, March 27, 2010 (UTC)
