The command-line-argument library has a callback function 'notifier' used like this:


If I write

        void foo (const std::wstring& s)

it works fine. wstring and void are the template arguments to the function object.
Now if I write notifier(&C::bar) instead, I get a huge spiel of compiler errors. Yet, from the body of foo you can see that s can be implicitly converted to the type of bar's argument (const boost::filesystem::wpath&) and the return type is also void.

I thought that generalized functions objects pretty much worked that if you can write the call in normal code, it makes the correct wrapper to do that. What am I missing?
