first, add the variable to the char_data struct near hunting and memory
and stuff..

struct char_data
  struct char_data *hunting;
+ ACMD(char_func);

then you can assign it like so:

void some_function(struct char_data *ch, int which_func)
  ACMD(some_command);   /* declare extern (may not be needed) */

  switch (which_func)
    case CASE_1:
      ch->char_func = some_command;
    case CASE_2:
      ch->char_func = another_command;
      log("Something screwed up!");

then you can call the function like so:

  ch->char_func(ch, "arguments go here", subcmd);

that should work..i haven't actually tried this, but i do something
very similar with my events..i'm not even sure if this is what you're
asking for..if you need any more help email me private..
