Glad to help! .....but,sincerely your comment is not completely clear: a small explanation of what you don't understand would be really appreciated ;-) Just have a look at boost::bind and tell us what is not clear.

i'm not a computer scientist and so not an expert of programming stuff: i read the documentation but is not clear (at least for me). i'd like to understand what this function does and how i can use it for my purposes
