+ "do not use compare to test equality of strings; "
+ "use the string equality operator instead");
`compare` should be enclosed in single quotes (`'compare'`), since it refers to a method.
Comment at: docs/clang-tidy/checks/misc-string-compare.rst:12
+zero depending on the lexicographical relationship between the strings compared.
+If an equality or inequality check can suffice, that is recommended.
The documentation doesn't explain why is using `compare` for equality comparison should be avoided. Maybe `that is recommended to avoid the risk of incorrect interpretation of the return value and simplify the code`?
