This is due to the author forgetting that C++ headers are allowed to
include other headers. The "write" function ends up overloaded with
another write, and for_each doesn't know which one you mean.
You can fix this by renaming the write function (perhaps to "my_write"
or similar), or by applying a cast operator to pick the overload you
want (something like "for_each(lst.begin( ), lst.end( ),
(void(*)(string const &))write);").
P.S. For "why doesn't this compile?" questions, please refer to a
general C++ list/channel before asking here, as it's rarely something
