operator++/increment, second bullet item, ¶39 says "Otherwise if recursion_pending() && is_directory(this->status()) && (!is_symlink(this->symlink_status())..." but recursive_directory_iterator does not have status or symlink_status members.

[Apr 2016 Issue updated to address the C++ Working Paper. Previously addressed File System TS]

Proposed resolution:

Change [fs.rec.dir.itr.members] ¶39 as indicated:

Otherwise if recursion_pending() && is_directory((*this)->status()) && (!is_symlink((*this)->symlink_status()) ..."
