A similar topic is retyping. Perhaps you have a signal that takes an int, but you want to connect a function that takes a double.

This can be achieved with the sigc::retype template. retype has template arguments just like sigc::signal - return value, signal types.

It's a function template that takes a sigc::slot, and returns a sigc::slot. eg.

void dostuff(double foo)

sigc::signal<void,int> asignal;

asignal.connect(  sigc::retype<void, int>( slot(&dostuff) )  );

If you only want to change the return type, you can use sigc::retype_return. retype_return needs only one template argument.
