Discussion:
Currently (n3690) Table 96 says, in the row for "a == b", that the Operational semantics are:
== is an equivalence relation.
distance(a.begin(), a.end()) == distance(b.begin(), b.end()) && equal(a.begin(), a.end(),b.begin())
Given the extension of equal for C++14, this can be simplified to:
== is an equivalence relation.
equal(a.begin(), a.end(), b.begin(), b.end())
[ Alisdair notes that a similar edit would apply to the unordered containers requirements. ]
Previous resolution from Marshall Clow:
Ammend the Operational Semantics for 21.2.1 [container.requirements.general], Table 96, row "a == b"
== is an equivalence relation.
distance(a.begin(), a.end()) == distance(b.begin(), b.end()) &&equal(a.begin(), a.end(), b.begin(), b.end())Ammend 21.2.7 [unord.req] p12:
Two unordered containers a and b compare equal if a.size() == b.size() and, for every equivalent-key group [Ea1,Ea2) obtained from a.equal_range(Ea1), there exists an equivalent-key group [Eb1,Eb2) obtained from b.equal_range(Ea1), such thatdistance(Ea1, Ea2) == distance(Eb1, Eb2) andis_permutation(Ea1, Ea2, Eb1, Eb2) returns true.

Marshall improves wording

Moved to ready, after confirming latest wording reflects the discussion earlier in the day.
