I subscribed to these lists which by feeling correspond the closest to
what I need the, after discovering that Boost HAS a list server.
I run Linux Fedora, GCC, Netbeans 8.2.
I recently upgraded from Boost V1.60 to V1.71. Then discovered that
Boost does not build the modules I want (Asio, Xpressive) by default,
and that the build thingy is largely obscure to me.
Looking at the log output of the build thingy, I see that the modulus
I want do not compile. Using the --with<module> has no apparently has
no effect, or, with Xpressive, outputs an error.
I would be grateful if somebody could answer me some questions:
- Why does Boost not use the classic ./configure/make/make INSTALL
build sequence? On top of that, the "jam" tool which Boost uses
appears to be documented incorrectly (I can read english beyond
- Could someone please explain to me how I build exactly ONE
additional module, for example Asio?
- Could somebody please explain to me how I can build the whole
library, module by module, dependably, to <stage>, if must be?
- Could somebody please explain to me why Boost has decided to NOT
include certain modules in default build process?
- What is a .JAM file for? search sez game and audio software, I think
Thanks, lastly, for putting up with my frustration.
