Re: strcmp

Possibly because some well-meaning-twat in the compiler division wrote a non-standard "deprecated" attribute into the string.h header file and so any attempt to use strcmp() is now rewarded with a compiler warning whereas using a less-safe-but-more-obscure function compiles cleanly.

Actually, strike that. Almost certainly because of the above.
