Hi All,

I am attempting to get acquainted with C++ multithreaded network
programming. I have a background in such topics within Java but considering
how different C++ is, I am starting from ground zero.

I have copied the code from tutorial #1 into my IDE, Timer.1: Using a timer
the link for code).

When I tried to compile this (using g++) with the following command:

g++ -v -I${BOOST_ROOT} -I. -o main main.cpp
(BOOST_ROOT is where I have boost installed), I get the following output:

Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64:

  "boost::chrono::steady_clock::now()", referenced from:

boost::asio::wait_traits<boost::chrono::steady_clock> >::now() in

ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64

clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see
Note this is the non-verbose output (I would rather not post the verbose
output, as I am trying to keep this post short).

I did some digging of my own on Boost's steady_timer documentation and
tried to follow that style, as you can find here:
In other words, I replace the two-parameter boost::asio::steady_timer ctor
call with a single-parameter ctor call in which I pass an io_context,
followed by

This generated another compiler error, this one to do with 'no viable
conversion'. See here:

main.cpp:10:21: error: no viable conversion from 'std::chrono::seconds' (aka

      'duration<long long>') to 'const



      boost::asio::executor>::duration' (aka 'const duration<long long,

      ratio<(1L), (1000000000L)> >')

Again, there is more output that I have omitted for brevity. If anyone
would like to see the rest of the output, I will gladly supply it.

The bottom line is I am not sure what the problem is, or why I am having to
debug tutorial code in the first place. This should be relatively simple to
"plug & play", should it not? Does this have to do with my compiler? BTW, I
am running Mac OS X.

Thanks in advance for the help.
