- Subject: boost, boost_unit_test_framework
I want to write some C++ programs that use boost and compile them using
cygwin. What is the recomended way of doing this?
Usually when I use the boost libraries (on Fedora Core) I would be able
to link my program using gcc by providing -lboost_date_time on the
command line. With cygwin I can't do that since there is no
libboost_date_time.a library insalled. However, these libraries are
In my build scripts I would still like to be able to specify
-lboost_date_time and not -lboost_date_time-gcc-mt-s. Is it the
intention of the maintainer of the cygwin boost package that I should
make a symbolic link (ln -s libboost_date_time.a
libboost_date_time-gcc-mt-s.a) to the library that I want to use?
In my opinion it would be preferable to have one of the different
variants of the date library installed as libboost_date_time.a. Is there
any special reason why it's done like it is today?
Another question regarding the cygwin boost package is why the test
libraries are missing?
I am curious. =)
