Sorta Yes.  I'll go through the general psuedocode that I'm using for 
Lostlands1.5.1 in getting my guilds (err. classes) to load from file.
That'll load the 'level someone gets a skill/spell' part of skills and
spells.  (the rest, I still compile in).

All you ahve to do is set up a class file for each class (0.gld = 1st class
(normally mage)). In which you have:
	S <skill num> <level>
THen, you parse that file like a wld/obj file (actually, more like a zon 
file), going line by line until you hit a $.
For each line, send the info to
	spell_level(spell_num, guild_num, level)
