Sometimes the choice is not so clear-cut.
std::for_each(v.begin(), v.end(), std::cout << _1 << '\n');
std::for_each(v.begin(), v.end(), lambda(x, std::cout << x << '\n'));
In general, I find that every non-pure-functional use looks better with the
_N syntax; lambda() implies a pure function as far as I'm concerned.
