Based on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Function_object#Functors_in_C_and_C.2B.2B it looks like there's no 
special syntax in the language core, but programs needing to pass an 
object as though it were a function (for example) do need to add some 
extra lines of code for each object needing such treatment.
