MUD/MUE Programming Team..

I am working on a project, creating a very basic MUD/MUE engine.  It is written in C++, optimized for RH5 Linux.  

I am working on it with a friend of mine, we are both C++ Analyst programmers.  We could really use some help from an experienced network programmer.  Anyone out there and look for a fun project to help out with?

Also, I've run into a bit of a theory problem.  I'm sure it works, I just can't understand how.

Say you have a client server application, Joe logs onto the server, and it creates an instance of the class CURRENT_LOGGED_ON_MEMBER.  Then John logs on and it creates another instance of the same class, but with John's information in it.  The class is just serving a big doubly linked list.

Is there any way I can create a pointer that will always point to Joe?  Or everytime I want to do something involving accessing Joe's data, do I have to run through the whole linked list until I find Joe's specific one?  Is there an easier way to do this?  Involving something other than classes/structs/linked lists?

Thanks! I'm really lost,

Matt

There is a mailing list of people interested in MUD developement.  Some of the the best minds in the industry participate in a regular manner (including the developers of ultima online and other, less known, systems).  The archives are on line.  The members are *very* helpful.

Point your browser to http://www.kanga.nu/~petidomo/lists/mud-dev and have fun!

The viewer will learn how to pass data into a function in C++. This is one step further in using functions. Instead of only printing text onto the console, the function will be able to perform calculations with argumentents given by the user.
The viewer will learn how to user default arguments when defining functions. This method of defining functions will be contrasted with the non-default-argument of defining functions.
