Crazy cygwin, maybe I missed a package in the install or something. I just commented it out and I'll switch out the code manually when I take it to my unix box
Anyway, thx for the help, it's working fine now. Also, I was thinking of posting the mud after I add a few more things. Space, ships, my clan system, gboard, copyover, lots of other stuff. But I did take out stock langs, races, classes, and areas. If anyone's interested in using the code, let me know.
