    download boost.
    extract to folder.
    add folder to include path.
    #include <boost/ptr_container/ptr_vector.hpp>

    what's complicated about it? you don't even need to build boost for most libraries. even if you want to use a lib that requires building it's still not that hard.

    If you find that complicated, maybe C++ programming is not for you.

    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?

    What you explained is simple but what is on the page I linked isn't. I'll check that out though. I thought I had to build any library I wanted to use. I'll add the boost folder in my include paths and see if I can make it work that way.
