I installed bind and it works as advertised. Thanks!

Ok, thanks for the warning.

This one is ok: the trains vector is properly sized before the call to
One thing I noticed with boost/bin/mem_fun.hpp is that I cannot
include boost/functional.hpp since they both define mem_fun in the
boost namespace. Is there any functionality in boost/functional.hpp
that I cannot get in boost/bind/mem_fun.hpp and boost/bind/bind.hpp.
It appears that I have to commit to one or the other. If bind is
accepted after the review process, will it supplant boost::functional
or exist as an alternative?
