Wiring up Boost libraries RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm just getting started with C++ and Visual Studio 2005. So I apologize if this is a silly or frequently answered question. I'm not sure what to search for.

    I just installed Boost ( on my machine. I want to write some code to experiment with the libraries. I'm not sure how to wire everything up though. I have to be able to compile code using the libraries, obviously. But I also want to be able to use auto-complete on Boost classes. How do I set this up? I've tried all kinds of different things from the Tools -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> VC++ Directories dialog. Nothing yet has worked.

    So what are all the steps I need to do to completely wire up the Boost libraries?

    Also, if anyone knows a set of libraries that does what Boost does, but better I would appreciate the tip.
