Nope, it fails on Comeau, too, but in the prelinker stage.

Nothing is failing; bind is being helpful by reporting the error earlier
when you allow it to.

The problem here is that bind(Bar1, _1, _2) is invalid, since Bar1 takes one
argument, and you supply two.

If I understand your problem correctly, you need to replace



Foo(bind(Bar1, _1));

You can now remove the bind() in Foo, it is equivalent to cb(a, b).
