I didnt know how to do that in C++ !

I've been reading through the C++ Cookbook (an oldie but a goodie – I assume that 99% of C++ out there is not modern C++, and modern C++ does not mean you don’t need to be able to grok templates, pointers etc – you may need to port something, or use a 3rd party lib)

Anyway, reading through stream manipulators, from my understanding this is how you pass a generic 'delegate' into a constructor & invoke it:

template<typename T, typename C>

class ManipInfra {


ManipInfra (basic_ostream<C>&

(*pFun) (basic_ostream<C>&, T), T val) // pass in

: manipFun_(pFun) // init list – init func pointer var

, val_(val) {}

void operator( )(basic_ostream<C>& os) const


    manipFun_(os, val_); // Invoke the generic function pointer with the stream and value



T val_;

basic_ostream<C>& (*manipFun_) (basic_ostream<C>&, T); // a function pointer – a delegate !


Note: C++ 11 has function<T> which provides the same functionality – courtesy of my esteemed colleague Tomer Shamam http://blogs.microsoft.co.il/blogs/tomershamam/ :


class YourClass



YourClass(std:function<return_type (param_type param)> func)




YourClass y([](param_type param){ ...});

Gravatar I just remembered that I used typedefs for function pointers & passed them for callback purposes last year !
