Subject: Re: [Boost-users] Using Boost::Bind

I should clarify, this is what I want to achieve:

boost::function<void (DBuffer&)> singleHandler;

void addHandler(boost::function<void (DBuffer&)> newHandler)
    singleHandler = newHandler;

The problem is that I don't know how to call boost::bind with a
DBuffer parameter, where DBuffer is one of my own classes.

If I understand you correctly, then in the following code:

void DClient::resolveHandler(int param)

boost::function<void (int)> functionPtr;
int tempInt = 12;

myHandler = boost::bind(&DClient::resolveHandler, this, tempInt);

The final line will call resolveHandler with a parameter of 12, rather
than 67? Surely that can't be right?
