Sort of an error.  Why not just use strcpy()?

Wrong.  ch->in_room is already a real room number; calling real_room on it
is an error.

Why bother with the sprintf() at the top, or even a strcpy()?  You can
just rewrite this line as: act("$n scans...", TRUE, ch, 0, 0, TO_ROOM);

Wrong.  current_room is an integer.  j is presumably a pointer to an
object.  This should read:
      for (j = world[ch->in_room].contents; j; j = j->next_content) {
