path has "int compare(const string& s) const;" but it should almost certainly take const string_type&, since the third overload takes const value_type*.

[2014-02-08 Daniel comments and provides wording]

This issue is the same as 2643 and resolves that issue as well.

[2014-02-13 LWG/SG-3 Issaquah: Proposed wording accepted.]

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to SG3 working draft.

  1. Change class path synopsis, 8 [class.path], as indicated:

    // compare
    int compare(const path& p) const noexcept;
    int compare(const string_type& s) const;
    int compare(const value_type* s) const;
    
  2. Change path compare prototype specification, 8.4.8 [path.compare], as indicated:

    int compare(const string_type& s) const;
