   That's nonsense.

   `fseek' is a standard part of the Standard C run-time library, which
   should be present in all "hosted" implementations of C. If fseek
   isn't part of C, neither is printf or malloc.

   Sure it is; it's defined on the same page of the standard as fseek()

   *Scheme* doesn't include random-access I/O in its standard run-time
   library, but C does.

I guess I owe a double apology for (double) waste of band width. I
should have thought a little longer before hiiting the keyboard.

With ashes on my head ... :(
