return std::isupper('c', std::locale()); // error overload not found.
but can be fixed with:
return std::isupper('c', std::locale()); // OK got it now
I'm not sure if this is due to a compiler bug or what, but basically it's
due to the way that STLport is set up: the names are declared in namespace
stlport (which is an alias for either _STL or _STLD depending upon the
build), and then imported into std with:
using namespace stlport;
in STLports _suffix.h. This works fine for most cases, but not when the
name is already present in namespace std (as is the case with the is*
functions for example).
