I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly. But it seems
unrelated to sc_spawn per se. sc_spawn (or rather sc_bind) is just a
way to execute some behaviour asynchronously (i.e. in a separate SystemC

So the global function is a function template as well?
How would you call the function directly, without using sc_spawn?

Assuming that the global function is a template like this:
template< typename T >
void global_function( T const& );
Then you should be able to use this function with sc_spawn by explicitly
giving the template parameters in the function pointer:
sc_spawn( sc_bind( global_function<some_class>, some_object ) );

It depends on the signature of the global function.

I don't know what you mean by "non-global". You can of course have a
static function within each of the spawning classes.

Yes, sample code would have been helpful. It's always easier to
understand the question, if you at least sketch your problem with a few
lines of code. It's even better to send a small, compilable (if
possible), and self-contained example that can then be tried by others.
