Ok, I am trying to make a very unique check, but I am not sure how to go 
about it.  Using something similar to Strom's Lost Land code for looking 
in specific directions, I want to be able to have the MUD check to see if 
a character is within sight range of the character in all 6 directions.  
For example, the character is in the temple square in midgaard and Marron 
is in the dump.  Marron IS within sight of the character, and I want the 
MUD to be able to return a positive value.  I have no idea how to start 
this, as I am not that good with this kind of code.  This little bit 
would be VERY useful for 2 reasons.  1> spells that can be cast at anyone 
in line of sight.  2> Missile weapons DIRECTED at a target.  (currently, 
they try to hit anyone in their path)  If I can get some help with this, 
I would be most appreciative (and I would certainly post it here for all 
to use)  I can send Strom's look code if you need to take a gander at it.
