        Actually, the problem isn't VC++'s libraries directly, but <windows.h>
which defines min & max as macros and *must* maintain C compatibility for
"legal" reasons (i.e. if they drop support for C coding, making someone's C
app no longer compilable, they'll be sued (again) for trying to drive a
competitor out of the market)

Maybe you should try and buy a more conforming standard library from
dinkumware (for VC++). It implements the min/max functions.
