I have a code written in C++ 0x. Since I am not familiar with C++ 0x, I am unable to understand the following lines.
//Fill Scene array with values
auto __greater = [&scene] (connect_line const& x, connect_line const& y)
return scene[x.first][x.second] > scene[y.first][y.second];
Please help me in me rewriting the code in a C++ version previous to 0x.

Re: C++ 0x
This code uses the auto keyword which is nothing special, the rest is a lambda function. The closest thing in this case would be to replace it with a functor.

It's better to understand it. People will get tired of rewriting code for you.

The lambda expression itself uses (captures) the scene variable by reference so it won't get copied. It takes two variables (by const reference) of the connect_line type as parameters. It compares two scene positions and determines whether the first is greater than the second. The bool return type is deducted automatically.
