Re: [PATCH] Micro-optimization to avoid creating temporary path

On 18/12/18 15:52 +0000, Jonathan Wakely wrote:
Now that path::operator/=(basic_string_view<value_type>) works directly
from the string argument, instead of constructing a temporary path from
the string, it's potentially more efficient to do 'path(x) /= s' instead
of 'x / s'. This changes the only relevant place in the library.

	* src/filesystem/ (filesystem::_Dir::advance): Append
	string to lvalue to avoid creating temporary path.

This is only an optimization if it doesn't introduce a new copy! Fixed
by the attached patch.

Tested x86_64-linux, committed to trunk.
