I am new in Eclipse and in unit testing as well.
Now, I would like to introduce myself to it using Eclipse tool on Windows.

But my first question is how should I integrated boost into my Eclipse environnement.
I have downloaded boost and unzipped it in C:\Program Files\boost folder.
So how can I build boost using Cygwin or Mingwin ?

Using Visual studio 2017 I was not able to do it using Eclipse.
I really need your help since 2 days I still not able to do this...

Thanks in advance.

Best regards

I don't have any specific Boost experience to share, but I can see some advice on SO:

To be able to help further I would need what is actually failing? Are you getting compiler errors, linker errors, something else? Can you do a non-boost Hello World?

As for using Cygwin vs Mingw (or msys2 as another option) that will depend largely on what you plan to deliver. Are you shipping a program that can be used by other people on Windows (mingw/msys2 may be best), are you sharing source code between linux and windows (cygwin may be best).
