Boom Edit Example Wad, also known by its filename BOOMEDIT.WAD, is a level by Jim Flynn created as a demo of Boom's advanced level editing features. The WAD has very little in terms of gameplay (no monsters are present) but demonstrates the majority of Boom's extended functionality along with in-level signage indicating the linedef type number corresponding to each feature.

A similar map named MBFEDIT!.WAD was created by Len Pitre to demonstrate MBF's new features.
