[CODE] Players and Drunk code

  I recently found the snippets sight and added a few things. On playing around a
bit I found my MUD crashing ;) Anyway, I started looking for the culprit/s. I have
changed players.txt because the following section of code I believe is meant to
concatenate the "\r\n" on the third column. Instead it overwrites buf and outputs a
blank line.

    if (count == 3) {
      count = 0;
      sprintf(buf, "\r\n");

here is my my modified version (a few extra things were changed)

  int i, count = 0;

  sprintf(buf, "A listing of all players currently in the database:\r\n");
  for (i = 0; i <= top_of_p_table; i++)
    sprintf(buf2, "  %-20.20s", (player_table + i)->name);
    strcat(buf, buf2);
    if (count == 4)
      count = 0;
      strcat(buf, "\r\n");
  page_string(ch->desc, buf, 1);

Anyway, that didn't fix my crashing problem. I think it has something to do with
the drunk code. I changed makedrunk so it just returns the same string and
it doesn't seem to crash anymore.

Anyone know what the problem is before I jump in and start playing around. It
might be the way I put it in, but I was just curious if others have had the same
problem. It doesn't like it if I go to Puff and set her drunk to 22 a few times
in quick succession. Seems to work okay when I drink alchol and talk myself
though. I think it crashes when Puff tries to talk through the spec proc. I'll
have to do some more testing though.
