+/* *********** READ THIS BEFORE YOU MODIFY ANYTHING IN THIS FILE *********** */
+/* WARNING:  All options in this file have the ability to significantly change
+ * the look and feel and sometimes even internal behavior of the program.
+ * The ones shipped as the default have been extensively tested.  Others have
+ * been tested to a (usually) lesser degree, and therefore might still have
+ * latent bugs.  If you change any of them from the default, PLEASE check
+ * to make sure that you know the full effects of what you are changing. And
+ * if you encounter any errors or compile time problems with any options
+ * other than the default settings, PLEASE inform 
+ * pennmush-bugs@pennmush.org
+ * immediately, so that they can be fixed.  The same goes for any other bug
+ * you might find in using this software.  All efforts will be made to fix
+ * errors encountered, but unless given a FULL description of the error,
+ * (IE telling me that logging in doesn't work is insufficient.  telling
+ * me that logging in with WCREAT undefined still gives you the registration
+ * message is a lot better.  MOST effective would be a full dbx trace, or a
+ * patch for the bug.)  Enjoy using the program.

+/* Malloc package options */
+/* malloc() is the routine that allocates memory while the MUSH is
+ * running. Because mallocs vary a lot from operating system to operating
+ * system, you can choose to use one of the mallocs we provide instead of
+ * your operating system's malloc. 
+ * Set the value of MALLOC_PACKAGE  to one of these values:
+ *  0 -- Use my system's malloc. Required for Win32 systems.
+ *       Recommended for FreeBSD, Linux, Mac OS X/Darwin, and other OS's
+ *       where you think the malloc routines are efficient and debugged.
+ *       Otherwise, use only as a last resort.
+ *  1 -- Use the CSRI malloc package in normal mode. 
+ *       Recommended for most operating systems where system malloc is
+ *       suspect. Known to work well on SunOS 4.1.x.
+ *  2 -- Use the CSRI malloc package in debug mode. 
+ *       Only use this if you're tracking down memory leaks. Don't use
+ *       for a production MUSH - it's slow.
+ *  5 -- Use the GNU malloc (gmalloc) package. 
+ *       Doesn't work on Alpha processors or FreeBSD systems, and
+ *       reportedly flaky on Linux. Requires an ANSI compiler.
+ *       Otherwise, similar to CSRI malloc.
+ *  3, 4, 6 -- Same as 0, kept for compatibility.

+/* What type of attribute compression should the MUSH use?
+ * Your options are:
+ * 1 - the default Huffman compression which has been in use for a
+ *     long time. In theory, this should be the best compression,
+ *     possibly at the cost of some speed. It is also 8-bit clean,
+ *     and thus suitable for locales that use extended character sets.
+ *     Sometimes has trouble on some linux systems for some reason.
+ * 2 - Same as 1, for backwards compability.
+ * 3 - Nick Gammon's word-based compression algorithm.
+ *     In theory, this should be considerably faster than Huffman
+ *     when decompressing, and considerably slower when compressing.
+ *     (But you decompress a lot more often). Compression ratio
+ *     is worse than Huffman for small dbs (<1.5Mb of text), but
+ *     better for larger dbs. Win32 systems must use this.
+ * 4 - Raevnos's almost 8-bit clean version of the word-based algorithm.
+ *     Prefer 3 unless you need extended characters. This algorithm
+ *     can encode all characters except 0x06.
+ * 0 - No compression at all. Very fast, but your db in memory
+ *     will be big - at least as large as your on-disk db.
+ *     Possibly suitable for the building stages of a small MUSH.
+ *     This should be 8-bit clean, too.
+ * You can change this at any time, with no worries. It only affects
+ * the in-memory compression of attribute/mail text, not the disk
+ * db compression. Recommend to keep it at 1. When in doubt, try them
+ * all, and check @uptime's memory usage stats for the most efficient
+ * choice among those that are stable for you. When using word-based
+ * compression, you can also #define COMP_STATS to get some detailed
+ * information in @stats/tables.

+/* If defined, use the info_slave to get information from identd,
+ * instead of having the MUSH do it directly.  This may help reduce lag
+ * from new logins.  This does _not_ work under Win32.

+/*------------------------- MUSH Features ----------------------*/
+
+/* Many MUSHes want to change the +channels to =channels. That's
+ * annoying. So we've got this CHAT_TOKEN_ALIAS, which allows + as well
+ * as = (or whatever) channels. If you want this, define it to be
+ * the character you want to use in addition to +, enclosed in
+ * single quotes, as in '=' or '.' or whatever. Don't define it to '+'!

+/* If you're using the email registration feature, but want to 
+ * use a mailer other than sendmail, put the full path to the mailer
+ * program here. The mailer must accept the -t command-line
+ * argument ("get the recipient address from the message header To:").
+ * If it doesn't, you could probably write a wrapper for it.
+ * Example: #define MAILER "/full/path/to/other/mailer"
