Hi,
I'm using following line in Visual Studio:
for_each(Array.begin(),Array.end(),
bind2nd(mem_fun(&Vertex::Calculate),Radius));

when Array is a std::vector of pointers to Vertex.
class Vertex
{
public:
...
   void Calculate(double Radius);
...
}

But then I get the following error:
error C2784: 'class std::mem_fun_t<_R,_Ty> __cdecl std::mem_fun(_R (__thiscall _Ty::*)(void))' : could not deduce template argument for '<Unknown>' from 'void (__thiscall Vertex::*)(double)'

what could be the problem? And how to fix it?
thanks

Initial comment....
as your member function takes and argument you need to be using mem_fun1.

(I know it doesnt' say this in Bjarne's 3rd edition)

and...
I had to make the Calculate function return an integer just to keeps the templates happy :-(

class Vertex
{
public:
...
  int Calculate(double Radius);
...
}

see http://cpptips.hyperformix.com/cpptips/ret_void_ref
for more info. Bjarne is onto it :-)
