Boost C++ Libraries of the most highly regarded and expertly designed C++ library projects in the world. Herb Sutter and Andrei Alexandrescu, C++ Coding Standards


Standalone Usage

This library is able to be used completely standalone - which is to say without any of the rest of the Boost libraries present on your system. In order to do this you must either:

Note that once the library is in standalone mode, you must have a conforming C++11 compiler as no allowances will be made for possible compiler defects which would otherwise be detected by Boost.Config. In addition, if you use a section of the library which makes (possibly optionsal) use of features from later C++ standards, then support for that later standard version becomes pretty much mandatory. In other words, if you hit issues, try upping your compiler's conformance level to C++17 if you can.
