Re: difficulty with c++ boost::thread (1.53.0) on Cygwin 1.7.20(0.266/5/3)

Thanks Marco!

I now get complaints about start_thread_noexcept:

$ g++ -D THREADED  multithread.cpp -l boost_system-mt -l boost_thread-mt

it works on my system, with

$ g++ --version
g++ (GCC) 4.5.3

undefined reference to `boost::thread::start_thread_noexcept()'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Can you (or anyone) tell me how to go from the "undefined reference"
error to the name of the library to be loaded?

$ nm  /usr/lib/libboost_thread-mt.dll.a |grep start_thread
00000000 I __imp___ZN5boost6thread12start_threadEv
00000000 T __ZN5boost6thread12start_threadEv
00000000 I __imp___ZN5boost6thread12start_threadERKNS_17thread_attributesE
00000000 T __ZN5boost6thread12start_threadERKNS_17thread_attributesE

Do the -l argument themselves require an order?  If so, how do I learn
the required ordering (w/o trial&error)

-l requires an order if one library depends on a following one.
For your case both ways work

g++  -D THREADED  multithread.cpp  -l boost_thread-mt -l boost_system-mt

as there is no dependency between them

With gratitude,
