Sadly I can't get this to work. Perhaps I have misunderstood what you suggested.

      [ run floating_point_examples.cpp no_eh_eg_support : : : <toolset>gcc-mingw-10.0.1:<cxxflags>\"-Wa,-mbig-obj\" ] # See note above.

I:\boost\libs\multiprecision\example>b2 -a -d2 toolset=gcc-mingw-10.0.1 floating_point_examples > .fp_examples_gccmingw10.0.1_16apr2020.log

I:/boost/tools/build/src/tools\gcc.jam:203: in gcc.init from module gcc
error: toolset gcc initialization:
error: version 'mingw-10.0.1' requested but 'g++-mingw-10.0.1' not found and version '9.2.0' of default 'g++' does not match
error: initialized from ...
I:/boost/tools/build/src/build\toolset.jam:44: in toolset.using from module toolset

I have confirmed that GCC 10.0.1 is my 'default' version - 1st in the user-config.jam

gcc.compile.c++ ..\..\..\bin.v2\libs\multiprecision\example\floating_point_examples.test\gcc-10.0.1\debug\threading-multi\visibility-hidden\floating_point_examples.o

    "C:/Program Files/mingw-w64/mingw-w64-x86_64-10.0.1-snapshot20200223-7.0.0-r1/mingw64/bin/g++.exe" -fvisibility-inlines-hidden -m64 -mthreads -O0 -fno-inline -Wall -g -fvisibility=hidden -Wno-missing-braces -DBOOST_ALL_NO_LIB=1 -I"..\..\.." -I"..\include" -c -o "..\..\..\bin.v2\libs\multiprecision\example\floating_point_examples.test\gcc-10.0.1\debug\threading-multi\visibility-hidden\floating_point_examples.o" "floating_point_examples.cpp"

So uses GCC 10.0.1 but does not pass the
  and so the assembly fails, as expected when not mingw.


Thanks, as ever.
