Boost.Build

vc7-stlport toolset

Introduction

Boost.Build's vc7-stlport toolset supports the Microsoft Visual C++ .NET command-line tools, using the STLport standard library implementation on Microsoft Windows. It is designed to allow you to build and test with multiple installed versions of STLPort, so that objects build in each configuration will be built into separate directories.

Configuration Variables

The vc7-stlport toolset responds to the following variables, which can be set in the environment or configured on the jam command-line using -sVARIABLE_NAME=value. It is an extension of the msvc-stlport toolset and therefore responds to all of the MSVC configuration variables in addition to those listed below.

In the table below, version corresponds to an STLPort version number, e.g. "4.5.3".

Variable Name Semantics Default Notes
STLPORT_PATH A directory containing at least one subdirectory of the form /STLPort-version where an STLPort installation can be found. empty Allows easy configuration for an installation where several STLPort versions are installed under a single directory.
STLPORT_version_PATH The directory where the specific STLPort version installation can be found, in case there is no central location appropriate for STLPORT_PATH, above, or a particular version's installation is not located in the usual place. empty Allows configuration of a specific STLPort installation.
STLPORT_VERSION The version of STLPort in use by default. 4.6 Other values can be selected in parallel setting the build property <stlport-version> to values from the list of $(STLPORT_VERSIONS)
STLPORT_VERSIONS A space-separated list of alternate versions of STLport available on this machine. 4.6 4.5 4.0

Toolset-Specific Features

The following vc7 -stlport-specific features can be used in target build requirements or in the BUILD variable:
Feature Values Default Semantics
native-wchar_t off on off Controls whether wchar_t is an intrinsic type or not.  This is off by default since that's the way STLPort builds itself.  Turning this on may result in unresolved externals from STLPort, unless you rebuild STLPort with /Zc:wchar_t.
stlport-version $(STLPORT_VERSION) $(STLPORT_VERSIONS) (see above) $(STLPORT_VERSION) Selects a version of STLPort for each target
stlport-cstd-namespace std global std Controls whether or not names from the "C" library headers such as <cstdlib> are imported into namespace std.
