        I'm not sure how curr_exp gets set above, but if its set to the
player's current exp, he will never level as he will always need 120%
more than what he currently has. <G> But we can make the function you
want with recursion:

int prev_exp;  /* put this with variable declarations above ofcourse */

   switch (level) {
      case 0:
         return 0;
      case 1:
         return 1;
      case 2:
         return 2000;
         prev_exp=level_exp(class, level-1);
         return ((prev_exp - level_exp(class, level-2))*level)/100+prev_exp;

This function will take the amount of exp it took to get to the previous
level from the level before that, multiply it by a percentage equal to
the level, to find the exp needed from the previous level to the new level.
Ofcourse it is a bit CPU intensive with all the recursion, if the call
level_exp(class, level-2) can somehow be avoided it will save alot.

Sorry, I'm all out of ink. :)

I hope this helped,
