Yes, of course, my point is that test-any.cpp doesn't use anything from
<cstdlib>, if I'm not mistaken; and if it did, you'd either get an error on
MSVC that the identifier is not a member of std:: or an error from the real
compilers that the identifier is in std::. <stdlib.h> would work on both -
had it been required.

Oh, all right then.
