Okay, I'm going to resist the urge to rant and flame :)

You will want to declare those two variables locally - i.e. in the
function itself. So, it'll look something like this:

Oh, arg is declared globally btw. But even if you use arg, you'll still
need another variable for the rest of the string.

 char   arg1[MAX_STRING_LENGTH];
 char   arg2[MAX_STRING_LENGTH];


Now... this is a very simple C fundamental. I really would suggest that
you buy a good book on C programming, or at the very least check out a
couple of tutorials around the web.

Like you (I presume), I started 'coding' muds before I learnt any
C. Looking back, I would have saved both myself and others a lot of
trouble if I had just taken the time to learn C before I tried coding a
mud. Trust me, you'll be better for it - and not only in the mud
context. Because I wanted to code a mud, I learnt C (eventually). Because
I learnt C, I now work as a software developer. It pays off, honest :)
