Hello Jonas.

Is there no elegant solution to this? I use a library of mine that does
some screen operations, like gotoxy, and includes the CRT library. So,
even if I only use hex output from that library, I still get CRT for free.
I could seperate those routines, but that CRT library would always dangle
there as a Damocles's sword...

I'm no expert - doesn't the forms library do something similar as the crt
