C++ Boost newlib version possible?

Post by Raziel »

Seeing that this error has been fixed since (if i understand it right), may i ask if it is possible now to get an updated newlib version of the C++ boost libs?

Thank you

Unfortunately boost uses it's own stupid, badly documented build system (no idea why) so I haven't yet managed to do a proper newlib port.

OTOH fortunately most of boost is implemented as header files that you can just copy straight into your SDK and use as is, and for those few classes that need compiling you can just compile and link the relevant source files directly with the program in question. This is how the Widelands and Wesnoth ports are done f.e. (both programs need boost to compile).

I have ported the Boost build system and will do an update when I find the time.
