c++ - strchr() non-standard?

I'm having trouble with DMC++ because string.h defines non-standard 
overloads of strchr() (and others).

Using -A then fails in STLport's cwchar

Is there a reason for the non-standard definitions? Is it safe to assume 
they will not be persist as is, so I can be confident of a DMC++-specific 
workaround?

Cheers

For a workaround for now, just drop using -A.

The problem was when -A was not used; the STLport problem arises when -A was used. I've just worked around it by implementing an shwild_strchr() function, whose return type and calling convention I have total control of, for taking the address of.
