I wrote the program under Linux; it seems the STL that comes with gcc is
not fully standard compliant.
For some strange reason, the STL implementation that comes with gcc
basic_string<>::compare(basic_string<>&, size_type, size_type)
whereas the standard implements this as
basic_string<>::compare(size_type, size_type, basic_string<>&)
This is something I already stumbled over when programming my argp
class; It seems I should _really_ consider an update ;)
Anyway, you are right; The quoted line should really be
if ((beg->longopt).compare(0, s, val) == 0)
Hope this helps
