There is another problem with release builds with Borland in filesystem
(won't compile). Original message below again.

Another, easier fix as pointed out in the actual thread, is to remove
the std:: and put using namespace std; at the top of the file (it is a
.cpp, not a .h), then Borland and others will find strcmp.



Borland bcc32 (only tested on 0x564), but probably affects version
before this and kylix (0x570) which I can't test, has a bug where when
you do a release build, functions such as strcmp (which the compiler
intrinsicly generates) aren't put in the std:: namespace so

std::strcmp will fail to compile on these compilers in a release build
mode. Works fine in debug mode. The solution is to just call strcmp in
a release build. This occurs in

operations_posix_windows.cpp for filesystem at lines


Could a work-around be provided. I've locally changed lines at 234-235
to be

           #if defined(__BORLANDC__) && (__BORLANDC__ <= 0x564) &&
           if ( strcmp( name, "." ) != 0
             && strcmp( name, ".." ) != 0 )
           if ( std::strcmp( name, "." ) != 0
             && std::strcmp( name, ".." ) != 0 )

But am unsure of the work-around syntax to use this correctly. The same
work-around can be applied at 271-272 also.
