Hey all, I'm trying to build a manpage for the ros boost library. I've looked at the wiki, and the information for this specific library is really sparse. Can anyone point me towards a more complete documentation that I can use as the basis for my man page?

Thanks!

What exactly is the "ROS Boost library"? ROS uses standard Boost (v1.55 for Kinetic fi, docs here).

I'm pretty sure that package is only used in rosbuild environments. With Catkin, Boost is just another system dependency, and you find_package(..) and use it in your CMakeLists.txt just as you would in any other CMake project. @Dirk Thomas will probably correct me if I'm wrong.

The C++ system library dependencies page in the Catkin documentation contains an example for Boost.
