    Build Error

    I put Boost's headers in my include directory, figuring I'd use the header-only utilities. Everything compiled fine, but now I'm getting this mysterious and entirely unexplained "build error" as my sole problem during a build. It's not like boost::ptr_vector is tring to link to anything, is it? Bloodshed says that the error is in the makefile, when assembling the executable. What might the issue be?

    No it isn't.

    Then your IDE must hide the error messages. g++ error messages are usually rather verbose.

    I had added a txt file to the project, as an input sample. Unlike MSVC++, Dev-C++ tried to compile it. Removing the file from the project fixed the problem.

    that's pretty slack on Dev-C++'s part. Maybe there's an "exclude from build" option?

    If you program in C++, you need Boost. You should also know how to use the Standard Library (STL). Want to make games? After reading this, I don't like WxWidgets anymore. Want to add some scripting to your App?
