Is there anyway I can do this in VC++.NET: template <class type> bool (*isGreater) (type data1, type data2); It is a function for a templated binary tree class. It it used to determine if a data memeber needs to go to the right or left. VC++.NET gives me the following error: error C2998: 'bool (__cdecl *__cdecl isGreater)(<template parameter>,<template parameter>)' : cannot be a template definition [Edit: board needs a little coaxing to show template definitions.] [edited by - Oluseyi on April 20, 2002 11:11:23 AM]

Embed the function pointer type in a template class:

template <class type> class function_type
typedef bool (*isGreater)(type data1, type data2);

Then, reference via:

function_type<type_goes_here>::isGreater func= blah;
