In these "2" marked files, the caller EXE owns the seed, and the DLL's cdecl function leaves the constant pointer on the stack. The EXE knows that the DLL has not modified it, so just leaves it alone through the multiple function calls. It is removed at the end, in preparation to return to the operating system. (To remove a bunch of parameters, you could add to ESP. But to remove 1, I used a pop.) The function's external name is "rnd", now lowercase because it's cdecl.

The "2" marked EXEs and DLLs from the asm and mingw versions should be interchangable with each other.
