[CODE] Calling pointers to player in zone

From: Zerin (dapiner@yahoo.com)

Hello again,
   I was wondering if there is away to call things in the zone
with little overhead.  Like zone flags/zone numbers.  I have added the
ability useing heartbeat/switch/posistions/etc.  I have copied the
function from
Mr. Greer's Oasis Olc to point to which zone a player is in, but
this causes alot of overhead (several functions being called in
do_move plus
it crashed the mud after starting when it was in do_move... prolly I
a struct at the top, but anyway, that's not the problem :P ) when
called over and over.  Is there away that would point to the zone the
in without very much overhead or alot of code?  I KNOW there isn't a
for this, and have attempted my best to work out a system, but still
was lengthy
and had to be redone for EVERY function, and was quite messy. Anyway,
help would be appreciated.
