Installing the library

The library consists of include files only, hence there is no installation procedure. The boost include directory must be on the include path. There are a number of include files that give different functionality:

Any other header files in the package are for internal use. Additionally, the library depends on two other Boost Libraries, the Tuple[tuple] and the type_traits[type_traits] libraries, and on the boost/ref.hpp header.

All definitions are placed in the namespace boost::lambda and its subnamespaces.

Conventions used in this document

In most code examples, we omit the namespace prefixes for names in the std and boost::lambda namespaces. Implicit using declarations

using namespace std;
using namespace boost::lambda;

are assumed to be in effect.
