Run bjam from the directory containing Jamroot as described in Recipe bjam dist. This copies the executable hellobeatles and the dynamic library georgeringo live online training, learning paths, books, interactive tutorials, and more. To automatically install the Boost libraries with , the command-line program bjam is used. The Boost libraries ship this program as source code and . finally the boost configuration file: // Jamfile import python ; project tutorial When I execute from my cmd prompt (after properly.

Note that two variants of hello2 are linked. The simplest project that Boost.

We’ve achieved our goal—if the library is moved to a different directory, only Jamroot must be modified. Now, to build the release variant of helloinvoke.

Before anything else, you should have the bjam executable in your boost directory or somewhere in your path such that bjam can be executed in the command line.

You use bootstrap only once to build bjam. Macker 1, 1 10 For example, a pre-built Microsoft Windows bjam executable can be downloaded here. The tutorial example can be found in the directory: Rather than specifying all these files individually, you can use the install-dependencies features, which allows you to specify only the top-level executable target and the type of dependencies that should be installed.


C++ Cookbook by Jeff Cogswell, Jonathan Turkanis, Christopher Diggins, D. Ryan Stephens

Starting bjam without command-line options always means stage. This example defines two alternatives for lib2and for each one names a prebuilt file. Of course there are shortcuts! There is a very basic tutorial at: Build uses features with associated values.


Post as tuutorial guest Name. After you download the Boost libraries, change to the Boost directory and enter the following commands on the command line:. This document is provided “as is” without express or implied warranty, and with no claim as to its suitability for any purpose.

For example, debug and release variants of a prebuilt library might be declared as follows:. The alias rule is specifically used to rename a reference to a target and possibly change the properties.

The set of properties specified on the command line constitute a build request —a description of the desired properties for building the requested targets or, if no targets were explicitly requested, the project in the current directory. A property is just a feature, value pair. While most of the libraries consist solely of tutoriial files that can be used directly, some of the libraries require compilation.

Sign up using Facebook. The solution is to use project ids—symbolic names not tied to directory layout. The following two commands, respectively, build or clean only the debug version of hello2. Sometimes the ways a target is built are so different that describing them using conditional requirements would be hard.

What’s written here should not be taken as “the one and only way”. Take note however that the preferred build tool for Boost. To portably represent aspects of target configuration such as debug and release variants, or single- and multi-threaded builds, Boost.


Building Hello World

First of all, just invoking ttorial will build the hello executable by compiling and linking hello. Luper Rouch 6, 5 34 Build, but surprisingly nothing on how to use it to build simple Boost applications. If we want the same requirements for our other target, hello2we could simply duplicate them. When core is built as a shared library, it is linked directly into utils.

Chapter Tutorial

I can find tons of general purpose documentation on Boost. Sometimes, particular relationships need to be maintained among a target’s build properties. There, you can find:. In this case the option –build-type should be set to complete to generate both debug and release builds of the Boost libraries. Yes I ended up using a makefile, I just thought bjam had some kind of shortcuts for boost, but apparently it hasn’t.

If you change to the directory vjam Jamroot and run bjamthe three child projects will be built. Build Requests and Target Requirements. You wish to use Boost. The rule build-project simply tells bjam to build a given project, which can be specified either by pathname or by a symbolic identifier.

Now we are ready Another improvement is using symbolic identifiers to refer to the library, as opposed to Jamfile location. Tip When one library uses another, you put the second library in the source list of the first.
