I wanted to try out the examples. I encountered some problems:
+ Read the quikstart to get me started immediately.
"Do not instantiate the main, preprocessing iterators yourself."
--> not enough context here. "main" is undefined at this point.
+ when using bjam V2, VC7.1 fails with a buffer overrun (compiler
problem). No problem with bjam V1. I wanted to try the samples
but they don't have a V1 Jamfile, only V2. So I had to switch
to using g++ instead. So far so good.
+ Now, I'm able to build the samples using bjam V2. A little hickup:
error: Unable to find file or target named
error: referred from project at
Looking at program_options, it seems that the library name is
program_options (without the boost_ prefix).
+ Got this fixed and. Now got into a link error:
ain.cpp: multiple definition of `_main'
ect.cpp: first defined here
