I am new to the Boost libraries and now trying to use Boost.Python. I have followed the build instructions to build the library, they all works fine. I have a question not sure why that happened that is when I used "bjam" to compile/link hello.cpp in "~/boost_1_56_0/libs/python/example/tutorial", it created not only hello_ext.so files, but also created "libboost_python.so", "libboost_python.so.1" "libboost_python.so.1.56" "libboost_python.so.1.56.0" and the first three were symbolic linked to the last one, why did those libboost_python.so* files need to be created. It were already in the build/install (by invoke ./b2 install) directory's lib directory. Also there is a bin directory created, not sure what is use for.
Is there any place I can search through the subscribers' previious post, so that I can avoid asking duplicated questions later.
