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.

Yes I ended up using a makefile, I just thought bjam had some kind of shortcuts for boost, but apparently it hasn’t. The Boost libraries come as source code. First, we need to assign a project id by adding this code to Jamroot:.


The tutorial example can be found in the directory: Projects inherit all attributes such as requirements from their parents. When hello is built, the two requirements specified above will always be present. In this case the option bjma should be set to complete to generate both debug and release builds of the Boost libraries.

The meaning of system wide depends on the operating system. Some other build system have special syntax for listing dependent libraries, for example LIBS variable. When core is built as a shared library, it is linked directly into utils. The effect would be as if we specified the same requirement for both hello and hello2. Build will deduce the its identity just from the name of one of its values.


Starting bjam without command-line options always means stage. In order to make installation as easy as possible, an automated tutirial process based on Boost. Note that debug and release variants are created in different directories, so you can switch between variants or even build multiple variants at once, without any unnecessary recompilation. We shall skip over the details. So far we’ve only considered examples bjqm one project —a.

First of all, just invoking tutorizl will build the hello executable by compiling and linking hello. Build testing facilities—the PATH variable will be automatically adjusted before running executable.

Now what would a basic Jamroot file look like to use bjxm this? Instead of validating and compiling individual libraries separately, Boost.

If we want the same requirements for our other target, hello2we could simply tutodial them. For example, a pre-built Microsoft Windows bjam executable can be downloaded here.

Chapter Tutorial

Because the default configuration is not always appropriate, you should know the most important command-line options:. After you download the Boost libraries, change to the Boost directory and enter the following tutorizl on the command line:. If a prebuilt library is located in one the directories that is searched automatically by the linker, as described in Recipe 1.

That will also ensure your app always links with the boost libraries compiled with the right options.

Default value is sharedand to build static library, the value should be static. Stay ahead with the world’s most comprehensive technology and business learning platform. Target alternatives can be used to associate multiple library files with a single conceptual target.

Then, enter bjam on Windows and.

Introduction – Installation

It belongs to the Boost libraries 1. After a successful build, you can just link in these DLLs with the Python interpreter.

They make it possible, for example, to tell whether a library has been built as a debug or release variant. With the command-line option –layoutbjam can be told to generate other file names.

Typically, shared libraries must be installed to a directory in the dynamic linker’s search path. If the gcc toolset were used to link an executable target to pythonlib tutorkal, -lpython22 would appear in the command line other compilers may use different options.

For example, imagine that a library actually uses different source files depending on the toolset used to build it. The simplest project that Tutorrial. For a complete reference to building Boost. The script automatically searches for a C compiler to build bjam.
