Hi all,

The following code compiles on mingw (gcc 3.4.5) but not on VC++ 8.0
express, and I am asking if anyone could tell me which compiler is right.

Here is simple test case:

struct caster
template<class T> operator boost::function<T>() const;

void func(boost::function<void(int)>) { }

void foo()

This compiles on mingw (it doesn't link obviously) but it won't even compile
on VC++ 8.0 express. I am assuming one or the other is incorrect (perhaps
they both are) so which is it? and also, is there a proper way to do that
conversion that would work on both compilers. doing a specific conversion
operator boost::function<void(int)> does work on both, but not the template.
