    Heres what I do:
    1. Have a file that lists the ID# of an item/weapon, then IDs it as an Item or a weapon
    2. I have a file that lists all the weapons and their stats, along with the weapon's id#
    3. same as 2, except for items
    4. I have a struct that holsd a char array for the current item, an int array for what items you have, and misc stats.

    Note: you can have many files open at the same time.

    If you aren't processing command line parameters, there is no reason to accept them as parameters.

    We'll if youre not running a program inside a program then void main is just as good as int main.

    See my point? It's not that you need
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    but, it is good practice.
    I never lie... except for right now.
