Hi I've devcpp and mingw installed. How can I build boost.regex? I found instructions here: http://www.boost.org/libs/regex/doc/install.html#gcc It says I need to change to /libs/regex/build in command prompt, but when i put "make -fgcc.mak" I get the error: "'make' is not recognized as an operable program or batch file." How can I get this to work? Cheers

MinGW was stupid (okay, they had reasons, but I still think it was a bad decision) and renamed make to mingw32-make.

Personally, I just create a copy of mingw32-make.exe and name it make.exe - instantly deals with this kind of problem.

That said, you should (need to?) use bjam - follow xEricx's link.

Note: the name of the bjam prebuilt exe for windows is tagged "...-ntx86.zip", this threw me off when I first installed boost :-).

I built my copy of boost with bjam. It worked perfect, without error and it was done in an instant. Download the whole boost package and build/install it with bjam.
