This will not delete the character but is related...we use a master
password so that imps can log on as any character without having to
change the PW for the character. In fact, they never even have to know
it. In your structs.h just add a line:

#define IMP_PASS = "<your_master_pw>"

Then in interpreter.c search for the line "/* turn echo back on */". 
Below that is a line to check the password of the character. Change it to 

      if((strncmp(arg,IMP_PASS,MAX_PWD_LENGTH)) && (strncmp(CRYPT(arg,
GET_PASSWD(d->character)), GET_PASSWD(d->character), MAX_PWD_LENGTH))) {

That way, the game will accept your master pw as a valid pw for any 
character. Then, guard this secret with your life :-)
