[ros-users] Subscriber and Publisher node at once in cpp

Hi Bünyamin,
I wouldn't create the Publisher in the callback.
Usually I have a class where I create the publisher in
the constructor and store it in a member variable.
Publishing can then be done from a callback method,
that uses the publisher member to call .publish().

You could also use a global variable to store the publisher
object if you do not want classes. Or you bind the publisher
boost::bind to the callback.

for more info.
