Hi there, I promised this information some time ao, I apologize for the
delay, but gee, I've been busy :)

Sorry it's so long, I wanted it to be complete... If anyone would like
further help or pointers let me know via email.

I heard there was a new version of WWIVedit? Want to send it to SimTel?

    FAQ for implementing WWIVedit as an external editor for Waffle 1.65
This works for me. This is exactly how I have it configured right now. Your
mileage, however, may vary. Note the inclusion of directory and file listings,
you should have no problems setting it up and putting everything in its place.
The WWIVedit .DEF file and dirs included here are the ones I use to configure 
the editor for remote use by my users on my BBS, so it won't let users include
files, or drop to DOS or other silly things like that. For local applications,
consult the documentation for information on how to set your preferences.
I hope people find this information to be useful. Please let me know if there
is anything that can be included/further explicated/improved.
