Something I should point out about this.  I wrote my own clan code using
some of the functions that snippet used, and my player table kept
corrupting.  There is something called

struct char_data *is_playing(char *arg)

Or something like that, and quite often, you will want to call it using
is_playing((player_table + j)->name), but is_playing trashes the argument
passed to it
by default.  You should  do something like

struct char_data *is_playing(char *vict_name)
  extern struct descriptor_data *descriptor_list;
  struct descriptor_data *i, *next_i;
  char new_vict_name[30];

  strcpy(new_vict_name, vict_name); // Temporary buffer we can trash
  for (i = descriptor_list; i; i = next_i) {
    next_i = i->next;
    if(i->connected == CON_PLAYING &&
      return i->character;
  return NULL;

Hope that helps a bit.
