My default toolset is msvc-8.0, and it seems that std::wcout doesn't quite
work there, although the trick with _setmode(_fileno(stdout), _O_U16TEXT)
does enable wprintf et al.

So I tried 14.0. Turns out that it's too new:

c:\projects\boost-git\boost\tools\quickbook\src\utils.hpp(40): error C2280:
&&)': attempting to reference a deleted function
.\boost/utility/string_ref.hpp(98): note: see declaration of

I then tried 12.0, same error. Still too new. 11.0 worked though, yay.

C:\Projects\boost-git\boost>dist\bin\quickbook.exe --help

Here's the same error from g++ 6.3 -std=c++1z:

tools\quickbook\src\actions.cpp: In function 'void
quickbook::role_action(quickbook::state&, quickbook::value)':
tools\quickbook\src\actions.cpp:339:35: error: use of deleted function

This looks like the string_ref issue someone already complained about. Your
Travis probably missed it because it tests against 1.63.0 instead of'ing its way to freedom, democracy and the American way. (Distant
bald eagle cry.)
