        the "d" is actually defined above in the function arguments in
most cases as "descriptor_data *d" - a pointer to the character descriptor
data. d->character is a pointer to the character data which is commonly
represented in other places as "char_data *ch".  You sound like you're not
very sure of pointers and structs.  Just read a c book, and if you already
have a good grasp on the basics, just check the index for "struct(s)" and
