Basically I didn't like the way the standard SMAUG room display and exits were set up, so I rewrote the part of do_look involved in it and also the do_exits function. The main difference is the way it displays room exits. It now says the amount of exits, and also displays closed doors in parantethis (eg. There are three visible exits: north (east) northeast.) and if the player is on brief it will display the abbreviation for the exit in brackets (with closed doors) after the rooms short desc (eg. The acadamy training grounds.[n,(e),ne]). If anyone likes this style, feel free to use it, and if anyone finds an error, please tell me.

Here it is:
/* Here is the modified part of 'do_look' (only the part for displaying the room */

/* add this to the beginning of the function */
bool brief;


if ( !IS_NPC(ch) )
{
if ( !str_cmp( arg1, "auto" ) && xIS_SET(ch->act, PLR_BRIEF) )
ch_printf( ch, "&w%s", ch->in_room->name );
else
{
ch_printf( ch, "&w[&G%s&w]\n\r", ch->in_room->name );
ch_printf( ch, "&w%s", ch->in_room->description );
if ( !IS_NPC(ch) && xIS_SET(ch->act, PLR_AUTOMAP)
&& ch->in_room->map != NULL ) /* maps */
do_lookmap(ch, NULL);
}

if ( xIS_SET(ch->act, PLR_AUTOEXIT) )
{
