Bug: Clan saving could attempt to close NULL file.
Danger: High - Undefined behaviour when closing NULL files.
Found by: Remcon
Fixed by: Remcon

---

clans.c, save_clan

Locate:
      fprintf( fp, "Jail         %d\n", clan->jail );
      if( clan->mainclan )
         fprintf( fp, "MainClan     %s~\n", clan->mainclan->name );
      fprintf( fp, "End\n\n" );
      fprintf( fp, "#END\n" );
   }
   fclose( fp );


Change to:
      fprintf( fp, "Jail         %d\n", clan->jail );
      if( clan->mainclan )
         fprintf( fp, "MainClan     %s~\n", clan->mainclan->name );
      fprintf( fp, "End\n\n" );
      fprintf( fp, "#END\n" );
      fclose( fp );
      fp = NULL;
   }


The position of the fclose call is wrong. Had the function been unable to open the file it works on, the code would have attempted to close a NULL file. Doing this is considered undefined behaviour, and on some systems this will crash.
