|Description:||Boost C++ Libraries: static and source libs (1.34.1-1006)|
The Boost web site provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries. The emphasis is on libraries which work well with the C++ Standard Library. The libraries are intended to be widely useful, and are in regular use by thousands of programmers across a broad spectrum of applications. A further goal is to establish "existing practice" and provide reference implementations so that Boost libraries are suitable for eventual standardization. Ten Boost libraries will be included in the C++ Standards Committee's upcoming C++ Standard Library Technical Report as a step toward becoming part of a future C++ Standard. Although Boost was begun by members of the C++ Standards Committee Library Working Group, participation has expanded to include thousands of programmers from the C++ community at large.
The libboost.python libraries are separated out into their own packages, with different package names according to the python version with which they are compatible. The nopython variant contains all others except the python libraries The systempython variant uses the system Python framework and installs the libboost.python dylib into /sw/lib. The pythonXY variants use Fink's python packages and install the libboost.python dylib into %/lib/pythonX.Y/site-packages. The static libraries and the compile-time dylib symlinks are installed into /sw/lib in all cases. Thus for linking, the link flag -L/sw/lib is sufficient in all cases. This version does not build the debug versions of the libraries. If you want these, please contact the maintainer and vote for them.
