Means exactly what it says.  You don't have an explicit declaration of the
function double_hit() before it's used, so it makes one up, which . . .

conflicts with the actual one.  Either move the double_hit() function
above where it's called or put a prototype above where it's called.  A
prototype is a declaration of a function's existence and types.  It looks
exactly like a function definition (what you have beginning at line 913,
there), except instead of the function's body in { ... }, there's just a

  void double_hit(struct char_data *ch, struct char_data *victim,
                  int type);

You could also omit the names of the arguments (ch, victim, type) from the
prototype.  Despite being shorter (and thus easier to type), this isn't
necessarily desirable: the names are nicely self-documenting.
