Hmm, well, first, there is one great resource where you can obtain
whatever code (for your MUD or for anything) you want: it's called a
book on C.  Once you learn and try for yourself, you'll be amazed that
whenever you want code to do something, you can get it[1].  With the
Daniel Koepke Get Code Fast system you will find that in a matter of
months you have doubled the amount of code you can add to your MUD,
and even add some bit of truth behind that, "Heavily modified," tag
that has become obligatory for all boring stock DIKUs in this day and
age.  Even further, you can avoid people saying that you are
"mindlessly" adding code you can't hope to understand!  And, you'll
receive fewer and fewer of these annoying parodies of infomercials
from Daniel Koepke _daily_.  The benefits increase exponentially as
time goes on!  The Daniel Koepke Get Code Fast system is not only
proven to aid you in creating a better MUD, but it has helped millions
of people with a variety of other things.  Martha Stewart[2] of
California reports that she learned to cook, clean, and make worthless
crap out of worthless crap as a direct result of the Get Code Fast
system.  A fellow named Gandhi[3] reports that the Get Code Fast
system aided him in anger management.  Buddhist monks from all around
the world report that the Get Code Fast system is the ultimate in Zen
resources, allowing them to understand the nature of life.  And one
Jesus H. Christ[4] reports that the Get Code Fast allowed him to feed
countless men with a single loaf of bread!  There is simply no beating
the Get Code Fast system -- and what's the price?  Is it $200?  No, of
course not!  $150?  No!  $100?  Not even!  $60?  No!  If you act now
you can get the Daniel Koepke Get Code Fast system for 4 _easy_
payments of $15.  It's an amazing deal for an amazing product!  Get
your today.  (Sorry, no COD.)

Here's a free sample of what the Get Code Fast system will enable you
to obtain!  Remember, you haven't even purchased the system yet, and
it's already working for you!  (Isn't that remarkable?!)

Add an "int try_other" to the argument list of perform_wear.  This
argument will be used to prevent, "wear cloak neck," commands from
trying other wear positions of the cloak (so, only "wear cloak" will
attempt it).

Locate in perform_wear,

  if (GET_EQ(ch, where)) {
    send_to_char(already_wearing[where], ch);

and change to,

  if (GET_EQ(ch, where)) {
    if (try_other) {
      int i;
      for (i = 0; i < NUM_WEARS; i++) {
        if (CAN_WEAR(obj, wear_bitvectors[i]) && !GET_EQ(ch, i)) {
          perform_wear(ch, obj, i, 0);
    send_to_char(already_wearing[where], ch);

Change other calls to perform_wear() to account for the new fourth
argument.  There are six calls to perform_wear() in stock Circle
bpl12.  Only the first two should have a fourth argument of 1, the
others should have 0.  Remember, this is untested Mailer Code(tm), and
in no-one indicative of the quality of the Daniel Koepke Get Code Fast
