Just wanted to add that I've taken the Eclipse of Fate clan code by Mehdi
Keddache from the ftp site and changed it to save to an ascii file in the
same style as Sammy's ascii pfiles.  I did this probably about 8 months ago
or so; it has one bug with destroying a clan online that I have to fix to
make it totally operable.  I won't promise that it's the best code, but it
works for me.  An example of the file it prints out (all clans save to one
file, in order):

   Clan: 1
   Name: Illusionists of Arcadia
   Memb: 1
   Powr: 1
   AFee: 0
   ALvl: 5
   Dues: 0
   Cash: 0
   NRan: 2
   0 Apprentice
   1 Mystic
   1 Arcadia's Chosen
   99 End
   0 2
   1 2
   2 2
   3 2
   4 2
   5 2
   6 2
   7 2
   99 End
   This is a test.
   This is only a test.
   This should be only construed
   as a test of the Local Clan System.

If there is anyone with an interest in this code, feel free to email me
personally and I'll share what I've done.  It is written to work with the
newest version of ascii pfiles as well.  (Sorry, I just like readable files
:) )  If enough interest is shown, I can post it to the ftp site as well.
