i included help min levels in my hedit patches..this snippet
was posted originally by akuma/doomer, so credit him..


1) add and 'int min_level;' to the help_index_element struct in db.h
2) change load_help to do something like this:
    while (*line != '#') {
      strcat(entry, strcat(line, "\r\n"));
      get_one_line(fl, line);

    el.min_level = 0;
    if ((*line == '#') && (*(line + 1) != 0))
      el.min_level = atoi((line + 1));

    el.min_level = MAX(0, MIN(el.min_level, LVL_IMPL));

    /* now, add the entry to the index with each keyword on the keyword line */
    el.duplicate = 0;

3) change do_help like so:
  if (found < 0) {
    send_to_char("There is no help on that word.\r\n", ch);
    sprintf(buf, "HELP: %s tried to get help on %s.", GET_NAME(ch),
    mudlog(buf, NRM, LVL_IMPL, TRUE);
  } else {
    if (GET_LEVEL(ch) < help_table[found].min_level)
      send_to_char("There is no help on that word.\r\n", ch);
      page_string(ch->desc, help_table[found].entry, 0);

now you can set the min level by ending help entries with a '#<level>'
instead of a '#' like this:


Usage: advance <victim> <level>

ADVANCE moves a player to a new level.  If used to promote a player to an
immortal level, and if you have the autowiz program installed, the wizlist and
immlist will automatically be recreated.
