Arnd,

Thanks for this and the other mails reviewing the code.

My TODO list keeps on getting bigger :). I will check into all of these and correct them.

Keep them coming!

Thanks!

Hank.

- // redefine the world, because we can
- extern char *i;
- void abs(unsigned u);
- #define FALSE (2)

If this is an API (as the header file name suggests), you just changed it.
Same for the other hunks in this patch.
