Re: [CODE][NEWBIE]The set name command for the last time

I guess what I need to there some way for me to create a new pfile for
the vict in this case, and save it with all of the old stats that vict
originally had? I know it is somewhere around the init char function...what
function am I actually looking for to create the actual file..and where can I
feed the stuff in? all I need to do is transfer stats from the characters to
the new pfile...any ideas on how to do that hypothetically? ; )

P.S. - I am still using the stock pfile system from bpl14, no ascii pfiles or
anything...just the regular default stuff, there are like 5 different
directories that hold the player files, and they aren't ASCII.
