    Pointer to a template function ?

    Is it possible to create a pointer to a template function - e.g. if I had a std::list of ints and I wanted a pointer to its "unique" member :-

    Code:
    void (*pfn)(void) = &std::list<int>::unique;
    The above code gives me C2275 but I'm just wondering if there's a way to do it successfully.

    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS.

    It's something I only need to do temporarily (for debugging)
