Detailed Description


C++ generic callback template generator


This program generates types and methods for creating and invoking
callbacks in C++ with arbitrary bound arguments and late arguments
passed in.

At present the generated code assumes that returning void is permitted
by the compiler.  Some additional hacking will be needed to support
the specializations necessary when this is not the case, but on our
main build system this is not an issue.

The notion of having a script to generate templates was borrowed from
David Mazieres callback.h file (in the async lib distributed with
sfs).  The code generated bears strong similarities to David's work, but
was largely written independently of it.
