boost::dll in cygwin

Boost - Users mailing list

Has anyone tried using the boost::dll library in cygwin?  Boost attempts to load <link.h> which is not applicable to a Cygwin system.  Is there any way to #define an option so that the boost::dll library will operate in this mixed windows/linux-like environment?

 

Thanks,

It looks that there's no test runners for cygwin platform http://www.boost.org/development/tests/develop/developer/dll.html

If you or your employer wish to become one and help a lot of Boost libraries to better support Cygwin, then please follow the instructions at http://www.boost.org/development/running_regression_tests.html

I've created an issue https://github.com/boostorg/dll/issues/17 . Fix would be probably availabe in Boost 1.68

Many thanks for reporting the issue!

 

Thanks,
