I am trying to finally implement DLL version of Boost.Test components. Here
is several issues/questions I have:
1. main() function
AFAIK there is no way to put a main function in DLL on windows. What should
we do instead? I reworked the framework specifically for the purpose of
making this kind of separation easier. But I still would like to hear what
people think in this regard.
2. main() function again
On unix(s) there is a possibility to put main info dlls (If I am wrong
please correct me). Should we use different semantic for Windows and Unix(s)
or use the one I implement for windows?
I need to call external function from inside of DLLs. How it should be
declared? Cause I am getting unresolved symbols error
In my Jamfile in default build section of build rule there is
<runtime-link>static/dynamic. Should I keep this? Should I use static for
lib rule and dynamic for dll rule? Nothing for lib dynamic for dll?
