+Building on UNIX
+The following build instructions are for the Linux/UNIX/Mac OS X
+operating systems as well as for Cygwin and MinGW on Windows.
+The standard autotools-based build system is used on these platforms.
+After unpacking the source code archive, change to the libodb-boost
+package directory (referred to as libodb-boost/ from now on) and run
+the configure script:
+To see the available configuration options run configure with --help:
+./configure --help
+The configure script expects the libodb headers and libraries to
+be installed in a directory where the C++ compiler and linker will
+search for them by default (normally /usr and /usr/local). If libodb
+is installed in another directory, you can use the CPPFLAGS and
+LDFLAGS configure variables to specify its location, for example:
+./configure CPPFLAGS=-I/opt/libodb/include LDFLAGS=-L/opt/libodb/lib
+If libodb is not installed and you would like to use its build
+directory instead, you can use the --with-libodb configure option
+to specify its location, for example:
+./configure --with-libodb=/tmp/libodb
+As another example, the following configure command only builds shared
+libraries, uses the specified C++ compiler, and compiles with optimization
+and without debug information:
+./configure --disable-static CXX=g++-4.5 CXXFLAGS=-O3
+Once configuration is complete, run make to build libodb-boost:
+Once the build is completed successfully, you can install the libodb-boost
+headers and libraries using the install target (you may need to do this
+step as root depending on the installation directory):
+make install
+Building on Windows
+The following build instructions are for Windows using Microsoft Visual
+Studio. If you would like to build libodb-boost with GCC either using
+Cygwin or MinGW, refer to the "Building on UNIX" section above.
+The standard Visual Studio project and solution files are used on this
+platform. The provided project files expect the libodb header and import
+library directories to be in the VC++ Directories Include and Library
+search lists. See the INSTALL file in the libodb package for more
+information on how to setup the VC++ Directories.
+To build libodb-boost, unpack the source code archive and open the
+libodb-boost-vc<N>.sln file located in the libodb-boost package
+directory (referred to as libodb-boost\ from now on). Here <N> is the
+version of Visual Studio that you are using. Once the solution is open,
+select the desired build configuration (Debug or Release) and platform
+(Win32 or x64) and build the solution.
+The resulting 32-bit DLLs and import libraries are placed into the
+libodb-boost\bin\ and libodb-boost\lib\ directories, respectively.
+Similarly, the 64-bit DLLs and import libraries are placed into
+libodb-boost\bin64\ and libodb-boost\lib64\. The Release versions of
+the import libraries are named odb-boost.lib and the Debug versions
+are named odb-boost-d.lib.
+To configure Visual Studio to automatically locate the libodb-boost
+headers, DLLs, and import libraries, add the following paths to your
+VC++ Directories:
+ Include: ...\libodb-boost
+ Library: ...\libodb-boost\lib
+ Executable: ...\libodb-boost\bin
+ Include: ...\libodb-boost
+ Library: ...\libodb-boost\lib64
+ Executable: ...\libodb-boost\bin64
