 +====== DD_DEFNS lump ======
 +
 +
 +//​DD_DEFNS//​ is a special [[lump]] recognised only by Doomsday. This lump can be used to include [[:DED]] and [[xg:​reference_guide]] data within your wad to make distribution easier.
 +
 +After all DED files (physical and virtual) have been processed, the engine will check through all the loaded WAD files for lumps named DD_DEFNS. All the lumps with that name are processed just as if they were DED files, i.e. they should contain a DED file in plain text format. The DD_DEFNS lumps are applied in the order in which they have been loaded.
 +
 +The lump itself is a pure text format that can be edited in any text editor such as Notepad. However a lump editor is then required to extract or insert this data into a WAD.
 +
 +Some editors capable of inserting DED definition files into a DD_DEFNS lump include:
 +
 +  *  [[http://​www.sbsoftware.com|DeePsea]]
 +  *  [[http://​www.doombuilder.com|DoomBuilder]] -- Can edit DD_DEFNS in the script editor.
 +  *  [[http://​www.doomsdayhq.com/​files.php?​type=8|Wadtool]] -- Win32 command-line tool
 +  *  [[http://​www.doomworld.com/​xwe/​|XWE]]
