I am working on doing this for my mud, except i am
using a SQL backend database, but for text files it
should be about the same. To start off with, look at
how Zones are loaded, that should give you a good idea
on how you would have to go about loading up
spells from a text file.

I had this on another of my muds, basicly the way we
did it was set negitive values for spells, so a mob
with a -100 in Bless could teach bless, then it's just
imp'ing a learn command that looks for spells that
have negitive learn values. Hope this helps!
