Using load_char would cause noticeable lags on many muds.  If I rember
correctly, the 2.0 version of ascii pfiles adds player level to the
player_table array.  Here's a short snippet I wrote recently for someone else.
It's untested and it's probably been a year or more since I've looked at the
related code, but it should be close.

  int i, p = 0;
  char buf[MAX_BUF_LENGTH];

  p += sprintf(buf, "Wizards:\r\n\r\n");

  for(i = 0; i < top_of_p_table; i++) {
    if(player_table[i].level > LVL_IMMORT)
      p += sprintf(buf + p, "%s\r\n", player_table[i].name);

This is obviously very simplified and not pretty at all, but makes a good base
to start with.  It may even be useful to binary pfile users who have levels in
their player tables.
