Passing member function pointers are template parameters

P: n/a

I am stuck with a syntactical issue and would appreciate some help:

I have a class with a templated mem fn like so:

class A
{
};

template<typename Ret, typename P1, Ret (A::*fp)(P1*)>
void A::somefunc()
{
P1* p = getP1FromSomewhere();
someotherfunc(p, fp);
}

// should I re-write the whole template shebang for someotherfunc?
// I tried (probably w/o understanding completely)
template<typename X, typename T>
void A::someotherfunc(X* p1, T func)
{
// fails with compiler error the statement does not evaluate to a
function being called
// with one parameter
func(p1);
}

What is the correct way to pass function pointers in a cascade?

P.s: I am mucking around with legacy code and although there might be
better ways of acheiving what I want, I am not in a position to make
whole-sale code changes

Yes, but it's not a correct way to use a pointer to member. You need
an instance of the class. Did you mean to write

(this->*func)(p1);

(or some such)?

Not 100% sure about your class requirements as the defintion is
empty...but here is what I could come up with based on the function
sgnatures you had..

class P1
{
};

class P
{
public:
void Pfunc(P1* p1_ptr)
{
};
};

class A
{
public:
template<typename Ret, typename tP1, typename tP2, Ret
(tP1::*fp)(tP2*)>
void somefunc(tP1* p) ;

template<typename X, typename T>
void someotherfunc(X* p1, T func);
};
template<typename Ret, typename tP1, typename tP2, Ret
(tP1::*fp)(tP2*)>
void A::somefunc(tP1* p)
{
someotherfunc(p, fp);
}
template<typename X, typename T>
void A::someotherfunc(X* p, T func)
{
P1* p1new = new P1;
(p->*func)(p1new);
delete p1new;
}
