Because of your lack of creativity, more buf[] usages will live on,
festering in the code, secretly building their army, and creating ruin in
their wake of conquest some day when we least expect it.

You should be ashamed. :P

Or Perl, but that's probably not so easy to rhyme.

perl -i -pe '
  /send_to_char$1($2$6$4,$5$3$7)/xg;' *.c

That should take care of:
  send_to_char("Foo", ch);
  send_to_char ( "foo", ch );
and everything in between.
