Thanks for the hint! I tried your editor and it works fine! I compiled your code in a library
and add it to my Makefile.

The only problem I had is that the function 'fl_edit_error' was not defined in the .c files
of the editor code, I found it in xfmail.c. I made the same definition in the file fl_edit.c
and its now working. I think it can be a good idea to fix the problem and to distribute the xform
editor as an add-on library.

Thanks again.
