I tried at least part of the tutorial on an Ubuntu 16 machine using the git
cloned code you have made available as of today, and I have the following
- Your example code suggests you look through a path of some kind for
the executable, but while trying the code on my own, it did not seem to do
this. I had to use absolute paths to the executable I wanted to run.
Which is okay, but it feels like the docs need to manage my expectations a
bit better there.
- Your documentation suggests the executable I'd create would terminate
when the child it spawned ends. I do not see this... my executable hangs
indefinitely. 'while (c.running() && std::getline(is, line))
data.push_back(line);' never ends for me. Is this a bug you are currently
working through, or is there something else that the tutorial may have
- Your documentation doesn't tell me much about boost dependencies. I
originally tried to work with the boost library one may apt install for
Ubuntu 16, but it didn't seem your library was compatible with it (or maybe
I erred somehow). I pulled down boost 1.61 and it compiled with that just
fine, but I wonder what is the oldest boost library one may use? If
there's a limit, it probably ought to be mentioned in the documentation,
since many distributions are terrible about keeping up with the most
current boost distribution.
