c++ - Support for Boost libraries

I didn't see any messages about this out there, but I may have missed them.

Has anyone attempted to compile and use the Boost libraries (www.boost.org) with
DM? The docs there don't mention DM as one of the pre-supported/tested
platforms, but I thought someone may have given it a try. In particular, I'd
like to use Boost's thread library w/ DM.

Many thanks,

Donnie Hale

I will give it a try as soon as Walter improves DM's namespace support. bye, Christof -- http://cmeerw.org JID: cmeerw jabber.at mailto cmeerw at web.de ...and what have you contributed to the Net?

Is there any progress with this, in particular, a set of configuration options to get going on. I am particularly interested in the tuple, lambda and graph libraries. John

going on. I am particularly interested in the tuple, lambda and graph libraries.

I guess DM should support all (or at least most) of the required template features (so there should be no need for any configuration option here), but DM doesn't support namespaces properly (and there is no configuration option to build the boost libraries without namespaces). You might have some luck if you remove all the namespace stuff from the boost source files... bye, Christof -- http://cmeerw.org JID: cmeerw jabber.at mailto cmeerw at web.de ...and what have you contributed to the Net?
