  • A function object f is compatible if for the given set of argument types Arg1, Arg2, ..., ArgN and a return type ResultType, the appropriate following function is well-formed:

      // if ResultType is not void
      ResultType foo(Arg1 arg1, Arg2 arg2, ..., ArgN argN)
      {
        return f(arg1, arg2, ..., argN);
      }
    
      // if ResultType is void
      ResultType foo(Arg1 arg1, Arg2 arg2, ..., ArgN argN)
      {
        f(arg1, arg2, ..., argN);
      }
    

    A special provision is made for pointers to member functions. Though they are not function objects, Boost.Function will adapt them internally to function objects. This requires that a pointer to member function of the form R (X::*mf)(Arg1, Arg2, ..., ArgN) cv-quals be adapted to a function object with the following function call operator overloads:

      template<typename P>
      R operator()(cv-quals P& x, Arg1 arg1, Arg2 arg2, ..., ArgN argN) const
      {
        return (*x).*mf(arg1, arg2, ..., argN);
      }
    

  • A function object f of type F is stateless if it is a function pointer or if boost::is_stateless<F> is true. The construction of or copy to a Boost.Function object from a stateless function object will not cause exceptions to be thrown and will not allocate any storage.
