I didn't know lambdas reduce to a function pointer without captures. I thought they were always functors. Cool.

On that subject, how would you go about accepting a lambda as a parameter to a function without accepting std::function? (i'm pretty sure you'd need to make the accepting function a template but it would be cool if you didn't)

For the most part, in embedded code I limit my templates to things that basically replace preprocessor macros, like

#define BAR_STATIC_ALLOCATION_SIZE 256

struct bar {
    char foo[BAR_STATIC_ALLOCATION_SIZE];
};


instead i might make a declaration that allows for the following

bar<256> b;

Real programmers use butterflies
