[Code] Changing parse_class to integers ...

This problem has been driving me nuts for a few hours now and
i think i definately need help.
I want to get parse_class to accept integers instead of characters
(so the menu is 1 - thief, 2 -cleric, etc) but I can't seem to figure
out how. I tried:

int parse_class(char arg)
        int temp;
        temp = atoi(arg);
        switch (temp) {
in order to change the character input into a number, but I keep getting
compiler errors ...
I also tried :

int parse_class(char arg)
{ ....

but then act.wizard.c and interpreter.c go nuts on me (nanny apparently
only likes characters and do_set seems to have some pointer stuff
going on that I can't follow) ... Help! :)

the reason I need it is b/c I have over 26 classes i am trying to do and
I'm going to need #s instead of letters.
