NAME

reload_object - return an object to its just-loaded state

SYNOPSIS

void reload_object( object ob );

DESCRIPTION

When reload_object() is called on 'ob', all the driver-maintained prop‐
erties are re-initialized (heart_beat, call_outs, light, shadows, etc),
all  variables  are  re-initialized,  and create() is called.  It has a
similar effect to destructing/reloading the object,  however,  no  disk
access or parsing is performed.
