[edit] Example

The following example shows how std::function can passed to other functions by value. Also, it shown how std::function can store lambdas.

#include <iostream>
#include <functional>
 
void call(std::function<int()> f)  // can be passed by value
{ 
    std::cout << f() << '\n';
}
 
int normal_function() 
{
    return 42;
}
 
int main()
{
    int n = 1;
    std::function<int()> f = [&n](){ return n; };
    call(f);
 
    n = 2;
    call(f); 
 
    f = normal_function; 
    call(f);
}

Output:

1
2
42
