CODE: Intros Revisited

From: Jeeves (philipe@[

Another methodology question for those of you who know the circle 
code inside and out...

I think I have the intro system figured least, I've got the 
array in and the means of adding to it. Also, I have a function that 
checks to see whether two characters are introduced or not. Now, the 
only question is...where do I call it? I am thinking of one of two 

1) Put calls to it in the act() function where it sends messages to 
the actor and the victim. This is easy. However, a different function 
would have to be called in the part that sends the message to the 
room, checking the intro arrays of everyone in the room to see if 
they have been intro'd to the actor. This gets a little harder when 
dealing with the shout command, as everyone in the zone would have to 
be checked.

2) Intercept every call to act() with the introd() function. Seems 
easier, but I'm not sure how to do it. This would set up two versions 
of act()'s for intro'd chars, one for unintro'd chars. 
It would be a simple matter to determine which to use on who.

Anyone have any bright ideas? They're welcome here!
