[CODE] abbrev snippet

anyone familiar with this code from Mouse under Abbreviations [by Zigg]:

In 'handler.c', change isname() to this:

#define WHITESPACE " \t"

int isname(char *str, char *namelist)
  char *newlist;
  char *curtok;

  newlist = strdup(namelist); /* make a copy since strtok 'modifies' strings

  for(curtok = strtok(newlist, WHITESPACE); curtok; curtok = strtok(NULL,

     if(curtok && is_abbrev(str, curtok))
        return 1;
  return 0;

it says "This will check for an abbreviation on every word in the namelist."
but it doesnt. i was wondering if i'm not seeing something correctly or if i
need to add something to it to make it work? as this code stands if a
mob's/objs namelist/aliaslist is freaky monkey mob, if you try to kill monkey
or mob it says they arent here, but it does indeed allow a player to type
kill frea and attack the mob, only if you try to abbrev the first word in the
namelist. if anyone could enlighten me i would appreciate it
