Should function_equal work with nested binds?


I expected the following to work but it results in a compiler error:



#include <boost/function_equal.hpp>

#include <boost/bind.hpp>


void f( int ) {}

int g( int i ) { return i+5; }


template < typename F > bool self_equal( F f_ )


  return function_equal( f_, f_ );



int main( int argc, char * const argv[] )


  self_equal( boost::bind( f, _1 ) ); // OK

  self_equal( boost::bind( g, _1 ) ); // OK

  self_equal( boost::bind( f, boost::bind( g, _1 ) ) ); // compiler




I made it compile by adding the following:


namespace boost


  namespace _bi


    template<class R, class F, class L> bool ref_compare( bind_t<R,F,L>
const & a, bind_t<R,F,L> const & b, long )







Is that OK?
