#12289 closed Bugs (fixed)

Compile errors if you include boost/geometry/algorithms/buffer.hpp directly

Reported by: phelippeneveu@… Owned by: barendgehrels
Milestone: Boost 1.62.0 Component: geometry
Version: Boost 1.61.0 Severity: Regression
Keywords: cout Cc:


If you include boost/geometry/algorithms/buffer.hpp directly in Boost 1.61.0, you will get compile errors about cout not being part of std. The same was ok in Boost 1.58.0. There seems to be a missing include to iostream somewhere.

I'm also seeing this problem with boost/geometry/algorithms/comparable_distance.hpp.

Using the latest commit (3ce8872) of the develop branch of the GitHub boostorg/geometry repo (and Boost 1.61.0 for the other libraries), both of the following commands fail:

g++     -x c++ -isystem include -isystem /opt/boost_1_61_0_gcc_build/include   include/boost/geometry/algorithms/comparable_distance.hpp
clang++ -x c++ -isystem include -isystem /opt/boost_1_61_0_clang_build/include include/boost/geometry/algorithms/comparable_distance.hpp

This violates the Boost header policy, which requires:

Make sure that a translation unit consisting of just the contents of the header file will compile successfully.

The Clang errors are:

  • Milestone changed from To Be Determined to Boost 1.62.0
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Thanks, it is fixed - we should not std::cout unless in define-conditional blocks

Yep - this works for me.

That said, I've found that other Geometry headers fail to compile independently and I've opened ticket:12393 about that.

Thanks very much for your work on this ticket.
