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.

We shall skip over the details. As discussed in Recipe 1. Every subproject is defined by a file called Jamfile in a descendant directory of the project root. Build to build an executable that depends on several static and dynamic libraries.

Building Hello World

Therefore, two steps are required to build and install the Boost libraries. Build, such as creating a user-config. Macker 1, 1 10 Projects inherit all attributes such as requirements from their parents. If you change to the directory containing Jamroot and run bjmathe three child projects will be built.

There, you can find:. You use bootstrap only once to build bjam. The meaning of system wide depends on the operating tutorlal. Let’s improve this project further.

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

For example, if a particular executable can be correctly built only with the static version of a library, we can qualify the tutorixl target reference to the library as follows:. A better approach is to introduce a level of indirection. You can either requiest static build on the command line:. It’s also possible to build or clean specific targets. The simplest project that Boost.


This can be achieved tutoriial conditional requirements. By using our site, you acknowledge that you have read and understand our Cookie PolicyPrivacy Policyand our Terms of Service. The top of the tree is called the project root. Now, to build the release variant of helloinvoke. We’ve achieved our goal—if the library is moved to a different directory, only Jamroot must be modified.

Static and shared libaries. As explained in Recipe 1.


Run bjam from the directory containing Jamroot as described in Recipe 1. Building a Complex application Using Boost. The Jamfile fragment below illustrates how these requirements might tutorual specified.

Build Requests and Target Requirements. This section will guide you though the most basic features of Boost. Build will deduce the its identity just from the name of one of its values.

For example, imagine that a library actually uses different source files depending on the toolset used to build it. When core is built as a shared library, it is linked directly into utils. Build can create and tutoriap both kinds. Since we have already built both variants of hellohello. The library probably has gjam headers that must be used when compiling app. Create a local alias target that refers to the static or dynamic version of foo:.


Have a look at the following command:. While most of the libraries consist buam of header files that can be used directly, some of the libraries require compilation.

Arranging projects in this manner allows you to take advantage of some of Boost. For example, a pre-built Microsoft Windows bjam executable can be downloaded here.

The project is described by a file called Jamroot that contains:. Let’s extend the example by adding another line to our project’s Jamroot:.

If you start bjam bjsm any command-line options, a default configuration will be used. On Windows, the target directory is Tuttorial A Jamfile to build the executable hellobeatles. Write low-latency code and design large-scale programs in a team of friendly experts in Houston, Denver, New York. The kind of library produced from a lib target is determined by the value of the link feature.

As with any target, the alternative selected depends on the properties propagated from lib2 ‘s dependents. Boost libraries that have to be compiled are made available on Windows with file names that contain version numbers and various tokens.

If you want file names on Linux to be the same as those generated on Windows by default, set –layout to versioned. The target directory can also be specified with the tutoeial option.
