(C++) BoostCygwin Installing Boost under Cygwin (under Windows)

 

Installing Boost under Cygwin can be done automatically during the installation of Cygwin: when you are requested to select packages to install, search for 'Boost' and select these for installation.

 

For some libraries, however, Boost must be built from source. Download Boost, unzip it, start Cygwin and go into the boost folder (mine is, for example, '/Libraries/boost_1_47_0') and type:

 

chmod 707 bootstrap.sh
cd tools/build/v2/engine
chmod 707 build.sh
cd ..
cd ..
cd ..
cd ..
./bootstrap
./b2
