This will definitely cause problems.  one_argument expects a buffer
(allocated memory).  The second call SHOULD generate a compiler error, since
position is a char, not a string.  The tests on these variables are also

Perhaps I'm just using older code (bpl17), but my version of get_char_vis()
only takes three parameters.

Circle includes str_cmp() (in utils.c) which is a case-insensitive version
of strcmp.  This gives a bit more flexibility, since it will catch things
like "iMmortal".
