I ran across a small contradiction in working draft n2723.
[forwardlist]p2: A forward_list satisfies all of the requirements of a container (table 90), except that the size() member function is not provided.
[forwardlist.ops]p57: Complexity: At most size() + x.size() - 1 comparisons.
Presumably [forwardlist.ops]p57 needs to be rephrased to not use size(), or note that it is used there only for sake of notational convenience.
[ 2009-03-29 Beman provided proposed wording. ]
[ Batavia (2009-05): ]
We agree with the proposed resolution.
Move to Tentatively Ready.
Change [forwardlist.ops], forward_list operations, paragraph 19, merge complexity as indicated:
Complexity: At most
size() + x.size()- 1 comparisons.
