libs/signals2/example/postconstructor_ex2.cpp

// An example of defining a postconstructor for a class which
// uses boost::signals2::deconstruct as its factory function.
// This example expands on the basic postconstructor_ex1.cpp example
// by passing arguments to the constructor and postconstructor.
