    *gasp* why in the hell do I see this question asked so much? The question itself is indeed one that a programmer will eventually ask but it seems that people forget that these boards come equipped with a search. I have answered this question on several occasions and even posted various code, and I'm not the only one do this!

    This question should make its way to the FAQ!

    post the exact error message, an invalid command may mean it was open (if you were editing it), check the header is in your include directory aswell as the .lib file for it

    stdlib (afaik) is part of ansi C, so make sure youre using an ansi compatible compiler.

    check the online help for the error messages
