The functions are defined inline in the header <string>. All but
the non-const overload of begin() are defined inside the class
template. The non-const overload of begin() is defined outside
(it makes a difference -- see

I'm afraid I don't really have a good idea what might going on
in your build. AFAIK, the stdcxx examples and tests link fine
so there must either be some configuration or other similar
mismatch between how you built the stdcxx library and how it's
being used, or the link command is incorrect. Make sure the set
of compiler options you use to compile your program is compatible
with those used to build the library (e.g., /Zc:wchar_t).
