Good suggestion. I'll add an installation section to the docs. The
library is header-only, so there is no lib to compile and link to.
Boost.Time_series requires either Boost 1.34 or Boost CVS HEAD. If you
already have a Boost installation with bjam, then just unpack
time_series.zip into some empty directory, set a BOOST_ROOT environment
variable to point at the root of your boost installation, and then you
should be able to compile the example program (libs/time_series/example)
with "bjam --v2"
If you're a Visual C++ user, the example program has a .vcproj file,
which will also get you going, so long as you set the BOOST_ROOT
If you're winging it, you just need to set the include directories like
-I /home/eric/time_series/boost/backports \
-I /home/eric/time_series \
The backports include path must come before $BOOST_ROOT, and is only
necessary if you are compiling against Boost 1.34. (It's not needed if
you're compiling against HEAD.)
