I want to remove some of the default helpfiles for humans/dwarves/giants/elves. But when I use the search function for words in the relevant helpfiles, they are nowhere to be found in the ROM source code.

While I successfully ADDED a new helpfile to the end of help.are for humans, I can't remove the stuff that tags itself on to the end.

Where are help human, help elf, help dwarf and help giant located in most ROM codebases? They're seriously nowhere to be found and it's confusing me.

Assuming you're using the latest version of QuickMUD, and not knowing exactly what you mean by "the stuff that tags itself on the end", look for the /* race table */ in const.c. It contains various information you may mean.

Not in const.c. What I mean is the stuff that, by default, appears when you type "help human".

However using Windows search function for select keywords found in said help file, they appear nowhere in the entire code?

It's impossible and it's confusing me.

Like I said, I don't know what exactly you mean.
Could you show us a help file and identify the 'default'?

Can you give an example (do "help human" and copy and paste what you see). Then state which part you can't find in the source.

Also please specify where you got the source from (after all, there are a few variations of ROM around).
