To correct typos, you can use UNIX style ^^ substitutions.
For example: Your description reads "You see a wlid child."
You can fix that with: @desc me = ^wlid^wild
The description would then read: "You see a wild child."
^^ substitutions work for @description, @succ, @fail,
@osucc and @ofail. It does NOT work for @lock or @name. (yet)
