I'm one of those poor C++ developers who have never used Boost before - shame on me.
So as the newbie to boost that I am, I'm overwhelmed by the amount of documentation and code and simply do not know where to start. There are many libraries and several tools that I know nothing about.
I thought a good start for me to become familiar with the Boost Libraries and Tools would be to get a Hello World app and its corresponding unit test built using bjam(?) and then run. Is this the purpose of Boost.Regression (to automatically build and test the system)? Is there an example which already does this?
After this bootstrapping of my Hello World system I can then throw in more and more boost stuff into my learning application.
Will I get a boost while climbing the boost learning curve with that approach or should I take another path? Advise and pointers to documents and source code examples to get me started are very much appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
