I don't think this is a problem with bind, but more of a C++ issue,
so my apologies if this is a bit off topic. I am passing a template
function to bind, and the resulting "bound" function is used as the
UnaryFunction in std::for_each. When I compile this application,
everything works as expected, but when the linker does its thing, it
can't find the template function. If I make a dummy call to the
template function, the function code is created and the linker is
happy. Is there a way I can make this all work without the dummy
call to the template function? I have a code example illustrating
the problem below.

Thanks in advance for your help!


#include "boost\bind.hpp"

template<class T>
bool TemplateFunction(T &t)
    t = 2;

int main(void)
    std::vector<unsigned long> v;


    //If this code segment is commented, it will not link. Uncomment
    // to resolve the link error
        unsigned long ulTemp;


    std::for_each(v.begin(), v.end(), boost::bind
(TemplateFunction<unsigned long>, _1));
