Here is a fast example.. Not sorted. Show mortals and all immortal
who are not invis..
[NOT tested! So typos and other bugs.. Blame me.. :) But it give you an
 idea ]

void make_who2html(void) {
   extern struct descriptor_data *descriptor_list;
   FILE *opf;
   struct descriptor_data *d;
   struct char_data *ch;

   if ((opf = fopen("~/public_html/who_on_mud.tmp", "w")) == 0)
     return; /* or log it ? *shrug* */

   fprintf(opf, "<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Who is on the MUD?</TITLE></HEAD>\n");
   fprintf(opf, "<BODY><H1>Who play right now?</H1><HR>\n");

   for(d = descriptor_list; d; d = d->next)
     if(!d->connected) {
         ch = d->original;
       else if (!(ch = d->character)
       if(GET_LEVEL(ch) < LVL_IMMORT || (GET_LEVEL(ch)>=LVL_IMMORT &&
                                         !GET_INVIS_LEV(ch))) {
         sprintf(buf, "[%2d %s] %s %s\n", GET_LEVEL(ch), GET_ABBR(ch),
                 GET_NAME(ch), GET_TITLE(ch));
         fprintf(opf, buf);

   fprintf(opf, "<HR></BODY></HTML>\n");
   system("mv ~/public_html/who_on_mud.tmp ~/public_html/who_on_mud.html &");
Hope it helps.
