About this modification file
This modification file is provided as a convenience to customers of IBM XL C/C++ V13.1 or V16.1, as well as XL C/C++ for Linux on z Systems, V1.1 or V1.2 who want to use the Boost 1.55.0 libraries in their application development. To build and use the Boost 1.55.0 libraries with the XL C/C++ compiler, you must first make a number of changes to the Boost source code. These source code changes are contained in a modification file that you can download and then apply using the patch utility provided by the operating system.

The modification file does not extend or otherwise provide additional functionality to the Boost libraries. The modification file provided for download on this page has been tested only with Boost release 1.55.0.

IBM does not warrant or offer formal support for this modification file.

Installing the modification file

To use the modification file, you must perform the following steps:
 
1. Download Boost 1.55.0 from http://www.boost.org/.
2. Extract the files from the package. Files will be created in the relative directory boost_1_55_0/.

Additional information
  • XL C/C++ for AIX, V13.1 (V6.1/V7.1) has been tested with Python Version 2.4.4.
  • XL C/C++ for Linux, V13.1 for big endian distributions (RHEL6/RHEL7/SLES11) has been tested with Python Version 2.4.4.
  • XL C/C++ for Linux, V13.1.1 for little endian distributions (Ubuntu 14.04/Ubuntu 14.10/SLES12) has been tested with Python Version 2.4.4.
  • Earlier versions, such as Python Version 2.3, do not work.
  • If you intend to run the built-in test harness, you should add the following environment variable setting at the top of boost_1_55_0/tools/regression/run_tests.sh.
export LDR_CNTRL=MAXDATA=0x80000000
  • HTML reporting is extremely sensitive to how your directory paths are specified. Using soft links may cause the reporting to fail. Specifically, if you have a soft link for $BOOST_ROOT and the name expands into a name of a different length, there will be a problem in finding the directory $BOOST_ROOT/bin.v2/status/. To fix this problem, append the following lines after the definition of $BOOST_ROOT:
cd $BOOST_ROOT
BOOST_ROOT='pwd -P'
