Code still in the making.

I haven't been able to complete nr. 1 yet. "Switch/case" method of doing 
things proved not to be very flexible, so I had to altogether change my 
approach (it's now demoted to if(!setjmp(env))'s). It turned out that, 
taking all requirements into account, a great deal of code needs to be 
written for each function, and there are more than 30 functions in 
string.h last time I counted. I'm again busy with college for the first 
half of this week, but I'll try hard to finish nr. 1 in the foreseeable 
future. And then I'll take up more than one category some other week 
(when I'll have less other things to do) to make up for lost time. I 
hope that's ok.

P.S. Stuff is a bit indented, and I'm not sure how to fit in fprinting 
result messages without breaking the 80 char width, or loosing their 
code-documenting application...
