I just tried to build the filesystem library under VC++ 6.0, I get
the following error.

../src\path_posix_windows.cpp(80) : error C2039: 'clear' : is not a member
'basic_string<char,struct std::char_traits<char>,class std::allocator<char>

It seems there is no clear method in VC6 basic_string implementation. If I
replace the clear call with the assigment of an empty string
or a call to erase() it compiles fine.

I haven't gotten any further with testing it.
