function call missing argument list

A function call must include the open and close parentheses after the function name even if the function takes no parameters.

The following sample generates C4551:

// C4551.cpp  
// compile with: /W1  
void function1() {  
int main() {  
   function1;   // C4551  
   function1();   // OK
