Hello,

I want to compile libboost_context.a for windows 32 on my ubuntu 64.

for that, I specify the following in my user-config.jam file
using gcc : : "i686-w64-mingw32-g++" ;

and then, I run the following:
b2 --with-context toolset=gcc target-os=windows variant=release link=static
address-model=32 binary-format=pe architecture=x86

this gives me the following error:

libs/context/src/unsupported.cpp:7:2: error: #error "platform not supported"
#error "platform not supported"
^

"i686-w64-mingw32-g++" -ftemplate-depth-128 -O3 -finline-functions

It seems like the context library of boost is not supported to compile for
windows on linux?
Is it the case?

Thanks,
Aja

Hi,

Can you please give me a simple demo test example that uses boost context
library?
This is just for testing purposes.

Thanks,
Jack

Pick whether you're using execution_context v1, execution_context v2
or the new callcc API.
