Searches a datafile for an object with a name.


DATAFILE *find_datafile_object(const DATAFILE *dat, const char *objectname);
Searches an already loaded datafile for an object with the specified name. In the name you can use `/' and `#' separators for nested datafile paths. Example:
      char level_name[10];
      DATAFILE *dat, *level;
      uszprintf(level_name, sizeof(buffer),
		"LEVEL_%02d", level_number);
      level = find_datafile_object(dat, level_name);
      if (!level)
	 abort_on_error("That level doesn't exist!");
Returns a pointer to a single DATAFILE element whose `dat' member points to the object, or NULL if the object could not be found.
