Build boost RegEx
I am using the boost library in the persistO ORM with the new C++ features. Everything was working good until I decided to use the ‘RegEx” library to search & replace text in a string. My assumption was that it will just work by adding the library link, like all other boost features were working but it didn’t. I searched the internet and found out that I will need to build the library with my compiler. I couldn’t find any good link to do it easily, except the link which gave a clue to right direction.
I needed the following steps from this article to get it fixed:
- Ran “Visual Studio Command Prompt” from tools folder in my VS installation as admin
- cd’ed to boost root
- Run bootstrap.bat from command line
It took 15-20 minutes for the compiler to compile the whole thing and at the end it generated the library files in:
The next change I required was to change the following libs name:
libboost_regex-vc-mt-1_49 -> libboost_regex-vc110-mt-1_49 libboost_regex-vc-mt-gd-1_49 -> libboost_regex-vc110-mt-gd-1_49
Then add the “\stage\lib” path to the project library path.
