    Problem using boost::signals2

    Hello all,

    I'm using boost::signals2 on my application.

    When I try to make a connection between a signal and a slot, both taking the same arguments. I get a compilation error.

    I reduced the code to a mininum reproducible example:
    #include <boost/signals2.hpp>
    class dest {
        dest() {}
        ~dest() {}
        void pslot(int *x , int i) {
            *x += i;
    class caller {
        dest *pd;
        caller() {}
        ~caller() { }
        boost::signals2::signal<void(int * , int)> sigEv;
        void init() {
            pd = new dest;
            sigEv.connect( boost::bind(&dest::pslot,pd) ); // <--- this line triggers the error
    This is the error I get, instantiated from the line that I indicate in the comment.

    target/usr/include/boost/bind/mem_fn.hpp:342: error: invalid use of non-static member function

    This is probably some silly error but I can't figure it out.

    Can anyone help me?
    Many thanks!

    I would try "boost::bind(&dest:slot, pd, _1, _2)"

    Thanks, that solved it!
