CHECK_FLAGS problems....

From: Corey Elliott (

Ok, here goes. I have implemented a Flag system on my mud where every
character has an array
saved called quest_flags.  As things happen, Flags are altered and/or
checked to see if they
have done certain things. I need a command to set specific Flags in the
array. I'm so stupid
when it comes to structures that I can't figure out my code for this. I do
three_arguments coded and it is working correctly. What I want to do is be
able to type this ->

flags <player_name> <flag number> <value>

and have it set the appropriate value for the sed flag and the sed player.

** in structs.h **
    struct player_special_data_saved {
        int quest_flags[100];

** in utils.h **
    #define CHECK_FLAGS(ch, i)  CHECK_PLAYER_SPECIAL((ch),

** and the main beef **
  struct char_data *vict = NULL;
  int number, number2, number3;
  three_arguments(argument, buf, buf2, buf3);

 if (!*buf || !*buf2 || !buf3 || !isdigit(*buf2) || !isdigit(*buf3)) {
    send_to_char("Usage: flags <victim> <flag number> <flag value>\r\n",

  if ((number = atoi(buf)< 0) || (number2 = atoi(buf2) < 0) || (number3 =
atoi(buf3) < 0))
    send_to_char("You can't use a negative number!\r\n", ch);
    if (!(vict = get_player_vis(ch, buf, 0))) {
 send_to_char("There is no such player.\r\n", ch);

    CHECK_FLAGS(buf, buf2) = buf3;
    sprintf(buf,"%s's Quest Flag %d is set at %d.\r\n",buf, buf2, buf3);
    send_to_char(buf, ch);

I get an error on the call to CHECK_FLAGS, and as I said before, I am still
learning with
the whole structures thing. The (I think) obvious problem is with buf not
jiving with the
char_data structure .Can someone help me out here?
