Are you aware of Boost.Phoenix ( or its predecessor Boost.Lambda ) ?
Also some of the functors appear to duplicate functors in the C++
standard library in functional.
Logical Xor ?
New and useful functors are always welcome but please look at Phoenix
first. If you feel you still have new functors maybe you can talk to the
Phoenix developers to see if they will fit in Phoenix, or submit your
library if there is enough interest by others.
