I am trying to run the program fragment below (extracted from process_jam_log.cpp) that creates a file in a new directory using the filesystem library on cygwin. It fails to create the directory and the file without printing a warning. Note that I'm using native cygwin paths. When I change the path into 'd:/newdir/newfile' everything works as expected.
When I define the macro BOOST_POSIX_API it doesn't even compile due to an undefined function status_api. Is this a bug in the library or am I missing something obvious?
namespace fs = boost::filesystem;
fs::path pth( "/cygdrive/d/newdir/newfile" );
if ( !fs::exists( pth.branch_path() ) )
fs::create_directories( pth.branch_path() );
fs::ofstream file( pth );
if ( !file )
std::cout << "*****Warning - can't open output file: "
<< pth.string() << "\n";
error message when BOOST_POSIX_API is defined:
bin/gcc/release/link-static/test.o:test.cpp:(.text+0x4a1): undefined reference to `boost::filesystem::detail::status_api(std::basic_string<char, std::har_trait
s<char>, std::allocator<char> > const&, int&)'
