So far we’ve only considered examples with one project —a.

The script automatically searches for a C compiler to build bjam. In this section, we shall outline the steps necessary to achieve that. Another improvement is using symbolic identifiers to refer to the library, as opposed to Jamfile location.

As discussed in Recipe 1. The set of properties specified on the command line constitute a build request —a description of the desired properties for building the requested targets or, if no targets were explicitly requested, the project in the current directory.

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. The answer is that some features are propagated —Boost. You wish to use Boost. In Windows for example, you can simply put these libraries inside the directory where the Python executable is. The project is described by a file called Jamroot that contains:.


When core is built as a shared library, it is linked directly into utils.

Building Hello World

Build testing facilities—the PATH variable will be automatically adjusted before running executable. Build, but surprisingly nothing on how to use it to build simple Boost applications. If you start bjam without any command-line options, a default configuration will be used. Static and shared libaries. Usage requirements are applied not to the target being declared tytorial to its dependents.

Invoking bjam without explicitly specifying any targets on the command line builds the project rooted in the current directory. Now what would a basic Jamroot file look like to use all this? Fortunately, there’s a better way. No matter what arguments are specified on the bjam command line, important will only be linked with the static version of helpers.

The command-line options stage and install specify whether the Boost libraries are installed in a subdirectory called stage or are made available system wide. Run bjam from the directory containing Jamroot as described in Recipe 1. Some environment variables will have to be setup for proper building of our Python modules. If you change to the directory containing Jamroot and run bjamthe three child projects will be built. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. It belongs to the Boost libraries 1.

The following two commands, respectively, build or clean only the debug version of hello2. Sign up using Facebook. To automatically install the Boost libraries with Boost.

For example, the locations of include d header files are normally not specified on the command-line, but described in Jamfiles as target requirements and automatically combined with the build request for those targets.


Typically, shared libraries must tytorial installed to a directory in the dynamic linker’s search path. A specific compiler can be selected using the –toolset option.

Thus, use gmake, or batch scripts, or an IDE, or whatever you like. To tell the linker to look in a particular directory, you can write. When building demanglerBoost. This can take quite some time, which is why complete is not the default. For example, the command above could also have been written this way:.

Instead of validating and compiling individual libraries separately, Boost. Therefore, two steps are required to build and install the Boost libraries.

To portably represent aspects of target configuration such as debug and release variants, or single- and multi-threaded builds, Boost.


For example, you might want to set specific define when a library bjm built as shared, or when a target’s release variant is built. The solution is to use project ids—symbolic names not tied to directory layout.

Then you don’t need to build any of boost libraries manually, bjam will take care of that itself as necessary. But that’s a one-time effort and after that things are much easier than before. A Jamfile to build the executable hellobeatles.
