[CODE] [NEWBIE] do_look crashing MUD! :-(

1) if AOL doesn't like it, but them in yourself, we do get paid and so don't
work that hard.
2) check out look_at_target() (i think)
3) VC++? have you run it in the debugger and tried looking at it there?  what is
the point of buying/stealing that program if you are going to get full use from
4) if you are running on unix, make sure you are getting a core file in the
circle/lib dir.  if so, type:
gdb bin/circle lib/core from the circle dir
in gdb type:
info locals
info globals

we MUST have some sort of debugging output to help here. No one has managed to
build a crystal ball yet.

I'm using circle code that is only slightly modified, and I haven't touched
do_look. However, whenever someone tries to LOOK <direction/obj/mob/player> it
crashes the game. They can still use LOOK without arguments, but when they
look at something kapow. I have no idea what I've done. :-(

Here's the code...sorry if it doesn't do the linefeeds quite right, AOL
doesn't like the kind VC++ 5.0 uses.

Damn right *snip*
