| Perhaps some examples would help. Here's some of what Boost.Function can do:

Ok, I do not have any problems with this.


Note that I wanted to use "defer_call" to bind _all_ arguments.

so in essence what I wanted is:

function<void> f(bind_all(&foo, arg1, arg2, ... , arglast));

Perhaps _this_ would be something for boost then... (the lambda lib
can be used of course, but it is a tidbit more complex...)

Supposed to be an examble with a worker thread that gets fed functions
to run, but the result is the same.

I was not (completely) aware of this.
