I have tried following <a href="https://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_66_0/more/getting_started/unix-variants.html" target="_blank">the tutorial</a> Boost gives on their documentation for installing boost and have looked at a few other questions here to try to determine why I can't install Boost at a custom location. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, but the <code>--prefix</code> option is supposed to specify where the Boost headers and libs will go, then <code>bootstrapper.sh</code> creates a <code>.jam</code> file that is used when <code>b2</code> or <code>bjam</code> is run.
I have tried following the tutorial Boost gives on their documentation for installing boost and have looked at a few other questions here to try to determine why I can't install Boost at a custom location. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, but the
--prefix option is supposed to specify where the Boost headers and libs will go, then
bootstrapper.sh creates a
.jam file that is used when
bjam is run.
When I issue the following command
./bootstrap.sh --prefix="$HOME/dev/emulator/src/boost" --includedir=headers --libdir=dist --with-libraries=date_time
I see that the correct lines are added to the generated
option.set prefix : /home/liam/dev/emulator/src/boost ; option.set exec-prefix : /home/liam/dev/emulator/src/boost ; option.set libdir : dist ; option.set includedir : headers ;
However, when I run
./b2 as instructed by the documentation, it installs the Boost libraries to the source folder; i.e.
The following directory should be added to compiler include paths:
The following directory should be added to linker library paths:
./b2 install gives me no file output to the intended directory either.
C/C++ problems. If you are familiar with C/C++then you must have come across some unusual things and if you haven’t, then you are about to. The below codes are checked twice before adding, so feel free to share this article with your friends.
In this Video We are going to see how to use Loops in C++. We will see How to use For, While, and Do While Loops in C++.
In this article, we'll take a look at using the isdigit() function in C/C++. This is a very simple way to check if any value is a digit or not. Let's look
C++ is general purpose, compiled, object-oriented programming language and its concepts served as the basis for several other languages such as Java, Python, Ruby, Perl etc.
