Sorry for being so dense, but I'm just now starting to try to really learn
function and class templates.

Do you mean that the template function definition must be seen before the
any calls to the function is made (I assume that's the instantiation)?

I guess what I'm asking is -- is the template function's prototype not
enough?  The actual definition must be seen before any calls to the function
are made?
