NEWBIE: Code, C question. [Part 2] (fwd)

       Ok, I changed my percent line to:

       percent = (100 * current) / total

You might want to fire up old gdb and do something like the following:

b <function name>
(when you hit the break point...)
step    (keep steping until you hit the line above)
print current
print total
print percent

That should give you some better feel for what's happening around
this point... have fun... gdb's your friend.

Another thing to check is whether you're using the right values or
if you're sending the same number for str/dex/con... 

The if (total...) current == ...  block also seems fishy to me.  What's
so special about total == 200?  and why assume 100 - <negative current>
will give a good result (a negative current would end up as 100 + 
abs(current) in what you have...  (you might just do a simple MAX(0, current)
and keep negatives out.)

  if ((total == 200) && (current < 0))

  if (total < 1)
    total = 1;

  percent = (current * 100) / total;

  if (percent < 1)
    percent = 1;

  if (percent >= 100)
    strcpy(word, "supreme");
