Bug: The QUICKMATCH macro is no longer desired and is being removed.
Danger: None. Preventative removal for future compiler issues.
Found by: Samson
Fixed by: Samson

---

handler.c, group_object

Locate:
       && QUICKMATCH( obj1->name, obj2->name )
       && QUICKMATCH( obj1->short_descr, obj2->short_descr )
       && QUICKMATCH( obj1->description, obj2->description )
       && QUICKMATCH( obj1->action_desc, obj2->action_desc )


Replace with:
       && !str_cmp( obj1->name, obj2->name )
       && !str_cmp( obj1->short_descr, obj2->short_descr )
       && !str_cmp( obj1->description, obj2->description )
       && !str_cmp( obj1->action_desc, obj2->action_desc )


mud.h

Find and remove:

#define QUICKMATCH(p1, p2)	(int) (p1) == (int) (p2)


Find and remove:

#define QUICKMATCH(p1, p2)	strcmp((p1), (p2)) == 0


Changes in the GCC4 compiler have made the reliability of the QUICKMATCH macro questionable in the future so preventative measures are being taken now to remove it before it becomes a problem. The str_cmp() function performs the same checks on string data and probably should have been the preferred method all along.
