CoFlo’s First Bug Report

Just a quick heads-up to anyone trying out CoFlo 0.0.1: A user has reported having a compilation issue with Boost.Filesystem that manifests itself in the following manner:

ToolCompiler.cpp: In member function ‘int ToolCompiler::GenerateCFG(const 
std::string&, const std::string&)’:
ToolCompiler.cpp:86:58: error: 
‘struct boost::filesystem::path’ has no member named ‘generic_string’

I’ve been able to reproduce this, but as of this writing don’t have a fix.  I have verified that CoFlo 0.0.1 successfully builds on the following platform/Boost combinations:

  • Ubuntu 32-bit / Boost 1.46.1
  • Ubuntu 64-bit / Boost 1.46.1
  • Fedora 15 32-bit / Boost 1.46.0
  • Cygwin / Boost 1.47.0

If you run into this, I apologize for the inconvenience.  Expect a fix in the next day or so.
