I temporarily replaced these with strcmp to get the program compiled.
Xspread seems to work (at least mostly) ok and uses only about 400k mem.
The user interface is quite spartan but nevertheless it's a GUI one :).

Xspread features lotus-123 import (some old format I guess), graphics
(slow), some matrix operations and most of the things one would expect
a spreadsheet to have.

Thanks, I'll look into this. Hopefully it's not too big. :)
