To my knowledge there is no general way to declare the return type of
boost::bind (or a Boost Lambda expression). In C++03 the best we can
do is boost::function, which can store arbitrary function objects
without having to know the type. In C++0x, the compiler can deduce the
type so that you don't have to declare it.
template< typename StreamT, typename Sink >
auto apSink( StreamT t, Sink sk ) -> decltype(boost::bind(t, _1, sk))
return boost::bind( t
Hope that helps.
