Integrating PocketPC into the build system
November 18th, 2005

So now that Chris has proven that PocketPC compiling can work, I’ve started looking at how I can integrate it into the build system. Currently I use Boost Build System V2 and it works very well on the Mac, Windows and Linux, (For anyone who’s interested, I put 3rd party libraries into a site-config.jam and have a different version for each platform). So next comes the challenge to include PocketPC…

Unfortunately, the latest milestone release of BB does not support Visual Studio 8 cross-compilation to embedded architectures. I did try following some instructions in the mailing list, but to no avail. So it seems, for the time being, that the best way forward is to write a script to maintain a vcproj file, or simply modify the one that I wrote to maintain my Jamfile. If you haven’t used BB before, this probably doesn’t make a heck of a lot of sense, suffice to say, It’s unforunate that I can’t yet simply say, using msvc : 8.0arm ;.
