Hi all,

I have come to the following conclusions about
using boost. Do please let me know if I am wrong.

1) Download the boost src from web.

2) Build/Install the various libs using "bjam"
   (For intel, one can download the lib itself)

3) To use the boost lib in one's code, 3 ways are

   a) Just include the hdr files (e.g.: bind.hpp)
      The entire template impln is in hdr file

   b) Include the hdr files and boost will link
      the reqd libs automatically (e.g.: thread lib)

   c) Include the hdr file and specify the ".lib"
      file yourself.

Also, whether a particular feature require 3a,
  3b or 3c has to be figured out by yourself.
