c++ - STLport 4.0 I/O streams

I have extracted 2 test-cases from the STLport 4.0 I/O streams library where
DM doesn't behave as expected:

  template<class T>
  struct A
  { };

  template<class T, class T2>
  struct S
  { };

  template<class T, class T2>
  int operator<<(S<T, T2> &s, T x)
  {
    return 1;
  }

  template<class T2>
  int operator<<(S<char, T2> &s, char x)
  {
    return 0;
  }

  int main(int argc, char *argv[])
  {
    S<char, A<char> > s;

    return s << 'a';
    // Error: ambiguous reference to symbol
    // Had: operator <<(S<>&,T)
    // and: operator <<(S<>&,char )
  }


...and the second test-case:

  template<class T>
  struct A
  { };

  template<class T, class T2>
  struct S
  {
    int operator<<(int x)
    {
      return 0;
    }
  };

  template<class T2>
  int operator<<(S<char, T2> &s, signed char x)
  {
    return 1;
  }

  template<class T2>
  int operator<<(S<char, T2> &s, unsigned char x)
  {
    return 1;
  }


  int main(int argc, char *argv[])
  {
    S<char, A<char> > s;
    int x = 0;

    return s << x;
    // Error: ambiguous reference to symbol
    // Had: operator <<(S<>&,signed char )
    // and: S<char ,A<char > >::operator <<(int )
  }


I would expect both programs to return 0 (that's what happens when compiling
them with GNU C++ 3.0.1).

I found that the problem was due to a forward declaration
and then an implementation being visible at the same time.

I email the c.announce newsgroup with a similar problem on the 3/10/2001. The beta compiler appeared to fix the problem with STLport4.0. Regards, Damian Christof Meerwald wrote:
