    compiler choking on mem_fun_ref()

    Hello, can someone please explain the error I am getting in order to help me get my code to compile?

    class RomanNumeral
    	UINT mValue;
    	vector<Symbol> mSymbols;
    	RomanNumeral(const string& romanNumeral);
    	void addToSymbols(const char& c)
    RomanNumeral::RomanNumeral(const string& romanNumeral)
    	for_each(romanNumeral.begin(), romanNumeral.end(), mem_fun_ref(&RomanNumeral::addToSymbols));
    	sum fo = for_each(mSymbols.begin(), mSymbols.end(), sum());  // you also must check for subtraction symbols
    	mValue = fo.Total;
    The error my compiler (GCC 4.2.3) is giving:

    /usr/include/c++/4.2/bits/stl_algo.h: In function _Function std::for_each(_InputIterator, _InputIterator, _Function) [with _InputIterator = __gnu_cxx::__normal_iterator<const char*, std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, std::allocator<char> > >, _Function = std::mem_fun1_ref_t<void, RomanNumeral, const char&>]:
    problemA.cpp:84: instantiated from here
    /usr/include/c++/4.2/bits/stl_algo.h:159: error: no match for call to (std::mem_fun1_ref_t<void, RomanNumeral, const char&>) (const char&)

    You are telling it to use a member function, but you never tell it which object you want to call it with.

    Something like this might work:

    for_each(romanNumeral.begin(), romanNumeral.end(), bind1st(mem_fun(&RomanNumeral::addToSymbols), this));
    I also had to change the signature of the function to:
    void addToSymbols(char c);
    I might be wrong.

    Thank you, anon. You sure know how to recognize different types of trees from quite a long way away.
