How to build Boost libraries with Clang 3.7 with Microsoft CodeGen?


  • Hi,

    I am beginning to use Clang 3.7 with Microsoft CodeGen since it is much better for templates and modern C++ code than the usual MS C++ compiler... however the Boost source code (currently 1_61_0 available) does not come with a Visual C++ project to build the libraries. Can someone point me in the right direction as to how to get these libraries compiled with Clang?

  • Hi Juan,

    >> the Boost source code (currently 1_61_0 available).

    Is it the third party library like this document?

    If so, since Microsoft doesn't support the third party product, for this issue, one idea is that you could discuss this issue with the Boost experts here:

    In addition, since it is also related to the Clang 3.7 with Microsoft CodeGen, maybe you could add a comment or discuss with the experts of Clang with Microsoft CodeGen here:

    So you could also get the direct information from the Clang with Microsoft CodeGen team.
