Default Chapter 10 - EX10_07 Issue

Hi, I'm sure I've typed something wrong but when trying to complied this example, I get:

1>c:\users\terry\onedrive\documents\tech stuff\programming\c++\ex10_07\ex10_07\function_obj ect.h(8): error C2143: syntax error: missing ';' before '('

I've copied the code from the download in case there was something I just wasn't seeing but get the same error.

Any ideas anyone? Is it a difference between versions? I'm using VS 2017 Community (all updates applied) on Win 10.

The code for function_object. h is:

#pragma once
#include <functional>

template <class T> class is_negative : public std::unary_function<T , bool>
    result_type operator()(argument_type& value)
        return value < 0;
It's being called like this:

    // Process integers
    std::list<int> numbers;
    cout << "Enter non-zero integers separated by spaces. Enter 0 to end."
        << endl;
    cout << "The list contains:" << endl;

    cout << "After applying remove_if() the list contains:" << endl;

UPDATE: Strangely, all works fine if I replace the base template class references as so:

template <class T> class is_negative
    bool operator()(const T& value)
        return value < 0;
