PC game level editors

I want to know are there any web pages offering tutorials on how to build your own level editor for any particular game? Also is it possible to build a level editor without official source code or game documentation? Does this increase the difficulty? Thanks in advance to all positive responses.

    Usually it is pretty hard. First you need to know the specs for the level's file format, then you have to convert it to data within your program, and then you have to make it so you can modify that data. Unless you know the specs for the file format you're going to have a rough time figuring out how to edit it, in fact I'd say it is practically impossible.
