In the code below I'm trying to cound the number of times a string

The example on ints in vector vi works fine.

But the code for the string case does not compile. I'm *sure* this
should work, but I just cannot see what is wrong.

Could someone point me in the right direction pls - I'm tearing my
hair out.

Compiler is Visual Studio 2005 SP2

using namespace std;

int main()
std::vector<std::string> s;
vector<int> vi;
// fill vectors

std::cout<< std::count_if(

std::cout<< std::count_if(
                 std::bind2nd(std::greater<string>(),"B")); //
compile error here ???

"B" is not a string. Perhaps you could construct a temporary to pass it
to 'bind2nd':

    ... bind2nd(greater<string>(), string("B"));

Just a shot in the dark, really.

     return 0;

end the error is :
