Thanks to everyone that input to this command, I feel like it is ready for
public consumption, and would like to submit it for everyone to use

-- Insert at end of act.wizard.c --

/* Change Ownership of item from player to IMM
   Idea from Highlands II (hlii.highlands.org 9001)

   Additional code by:
   Christian Duvall - Getting Equipped EQ From Char
   Patrick Dughi    - Schooling me in act()
   AFCervo          - Moral support

   Thanks to everyone that helped make this command! */

Note: I am a 50 level system with 10 god levels 51-60, my load command is
level 54, so I feel that anyone that can load should be able to chown.

If you use this snippet please gimme a hollar and the mud you're using it
on I'd like to come see how you're doing with it.  This is my first real
command that I started on my own, and the help from this list has been

whois yea.com|grep YEA2|awk '{print $1}'
whois aree.com|grep DOM|awk '{print $1}'
whois aree.com|grep DOM|awk '{print $1}'|cut -c1
whois tm920|grep TM920|awk '{print $4}'|cut -d@ -f1
