I am using VS6 on Windows2000 and soon .NET2005. So
we are planning to migrate to boost 1.33.1 first with VS6 and then move all
our applications to VS8 (including boost). So, I am in the process of
writing an installation / migration procedure of boost for our "3rd
party manager". In summary, I want to do :
1- build boost with the right toolset 2- build regression tool 3- run regression tests of boost 4- validate regression result with boost specification from <a href="http://engineering.meta-comm.com/boost.aspx" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">
http://engineering.meta-comm.com/boost.aspx 5- integrate the newly compiled boost in our application 6- correct compilation error if any change where made in the public interface 7- run our application regression test
8- submit to our version control system
I am having hard time to do all this :) So :
1- I want to know your opinion about this. Does it seems like a good practice? 2- I am unable to build the regression tools with VS6. Is It normal? Am I missing something?
3- I am unable to find a boost 1.33.1 regression test. Only Head, 1.33.0 or before? 4-
Does the result on my PC should be the same then the one posted on
boost site? It seems like it might be different. By analysing <a href="http://engineering.meta-comm.com/boost-regression/1_33_0/developer/summary.html" target="_blank" onclick="return top.js.OpenExtLink(window,event,this)">
I discovered that for the same toolset we can have different results
(goncalo-vc8 and RudbekAssociates have different results for vc-8_0
toolset) It is normal?
