Yeah, I did that yesterday and it worked, and for the life of me, I
couldnt not tell the difference. Reading the macro, it seems to be the
same as above
ie. #define GET_RACE(ch)  (IS_MOB(ch) ? ch->mob_specials.race :
and GET_RACE = value
would express it exactly as your if/else statements. I was trying to
work out the difference because when you read it out loud, it sounds the
same heheheheh

Bugger me, it means I havent read enough about pointers!!! I am on my
twenty millionth reading of pointers (this time, in a C++ book heh)

Thanks Mike and George. I understand it a wee bit better now, and
strange enough, the mud has lasted longer than 6 hours. How bizarre eh?
