installing boost

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install the boost libary and therefore I need the .jam thing but everytime I download that (from the official boost website) I get an empty zipfile?

Thanx, but there's still something I don't understand : do you have to set al those command lines in the boost.build thing or in youre code?

Are you trying to build all of the libraries or just certain ones? You should be able to build them all (or individually) via the command line.

If you're interested, you can get some precompiled libraries for several platforms here: http://www.boost-consulting.com/download.html

You just use the command line stuff to build the libraries (Just gives you a bunch of .lib files). After that, you can use them in your code just like you include any other library.
