Integration in Boost Doc Tools

boost::hs::quickbook now has a section in Quickbook docs. It is included in the main Boost SVN at:



You can download boost::hs here.

boost::hs has its own page here.

The Quickbook KDE support section is here.

Future work

  • Add more Boost libraries to boost::hs::cpp.
  • Support for DSELs. For example: Spirit, Proto, regular expressions.

There is an ongoing effort to push boost::hs upstream to the KatePart project. In a few months, KDE may have native Quickbook and Jamfiles support! For the moment you must download and install it.

Sources will be moved to the subprojects repository soon.
