User Reviews

  • One of the best collections of C++ libraries.

  • Easy install on Windows 7 or later ---------------------------------- 1. Open up a Cygwin terminal and cd to your downloaded source 2. Run ./bootstrap.bat ( had to search for file) ~/Desktop/Download/boost_1_62_0/tools/build$ ./bootstrap.bat mingw ** because Im using mingw Bootstrapping the build engine Bootstrapping is done. To build, run: .\b2 --prefix=DIR install 3. Since I use Mingwing gcc I run the following commands: ~/Desktop/Download/boost_1_62_0/tools/build$ ./b2.exe --prefix=/boost/ toolset=gcc install Easy Install. Examples are in the install directory cd examples and just find a main.cpp program. To compile just run the following command : g++ main.cpp -o example1

  • good project

  • TR1 !

  • I got stuck in the Boost filesystem tutorial with the instructions for Windows to type "bld". The bld.bat file is local and it contains the command "bjam". There is no bjam.exe in the distribution for boost_1_54_0 and the tutorial is no help on how to proceed.
