GET_RACE and GET_CLASS only returns a value which you then have to 
"convert" into the description of the approprtiate race and class.

Take a look at this code... This is probably what it would end up
looking like:

sprintf(buf, "%sName: %s   Race: ", buf, GET_NAME(ch));
switch(GET_RACE(ch)) {
  case RACE_HUMAN:
    strcat(buf, "Human");
  case RACE_DWARF:
    strcat(buf, "Dwarf");
  case RACE_ELF:
    strcat(buf, "Elf");
    strcat(buf, "[bug!!]");
sprinttype(ch->player.class, pc_class_types, buf2);
sprintf(buf, "%s   Class: %s\r\n", buf, buf2);
