Hi everyone! I'm new to all this stuff but very interested and would like to reference to your project in my work. I would like to ask is there any good guides or tutorials that would help me in installing the Boost++ Libraries because i cannot find one. I have this kind of errors - pasteboard.co/IJRmS6E.png Thank you.
I would like to ask is there any good guides or tutorials that would help me in installing the Boost++ Libraries because i cannot find one.
Unfortunately, I do not know a good guide for Boost. I know that there is the Getting Started Guide on the Boost website. If you find a better guide, please tell us.
The answer also depends heavily on your operating system. On an Ubuntu Linux system it would be enough to call sudo apt install libboost-dev to get everything installed where it should be. On Windows you have to download and compile/install the stuff yourself (as far as I know, I'm no Windows expert).
If you need Boost only for LibPTP, you have luck also on Windows. As far as I remember LibPTP only depends on header-only libraries from Boost. This means it should be enough to download Boost and tell OMNeT++ where to find the Boost headers. If you are on Windows do the following:
Download Boost, unzip it somewhere, e.g. C:\boost
In OMNeT++, open the project settings of LibPTP (right-click -> Project Settings)
Go to C/C++ General -> Paths and Symbols and switch to the Includes tab
Add the path where you have copied Boost (e.g. C:\boost)
Thanks for bringing this topic up, I realize that this information is missing in our Install Guide
Thank you. Your steps with Boots help me. About my work it's a small studie project, but i very interested in PTP networks and your work helps me alot. Would like to share something with community when i have. Thank you again work your help and this work.
I installed the Boost++ Libraries according to the Install Guide, but it didn't work. The following error occurred: Errors occurred during the build. Errors running builder 'OMNeT++ Makefile Builder' on project 'libPTP'. Path must include project and resource name: /boost
Do I need to set the path of Assembly, GNU C and GNU C++ to 'C:\boost'of the Includes tab when I do the step ‘Add the path where you have installed Boost (e.g. C:\boost)’?
Please provide more details. What is your operating system (which Windows version)? Which version of boost did you install? At which step of the install guide do you get this error message? Did all steps before that step work without error?
