NAME

       bcp - extract subsets of Boost

SYNOPSIS

       bcp --list [options] module-list
       bcp [options] module-list output-path
       bcp --report [options] module-list html-file
       bcp --help

DESCRIPTION

       Copies all the files, including dependencies, found in module-list to output-path. output-
       path must be an existing path.

       With --list, prints the list of all the files in module-list, including dependencies.

       With --report, writes the HTML report to html-file.

       With --help, prints a quick usage reminder.

       It is useful for Boost authors who want to distribute their library separately from  Boost
       and for Boost users who want to distribute a subset of Boost with their application.

   module-list
       When the --scan option is not used, a list of Boost files or library names to copy. It can
       be:

              - The name of a tool: for example "build" will find "tools/build".

              - The name of a library: for example "regex".

              - The title of a header: for example "scoped_ptr" will find "boost/scoped_ptr.hpp".

              -   The   name   of   a   header:   for   example   "scoped_ptr.hpp"   will    find
              "boost/scoped_ptr.hpp".

              - The name of a file: for example "boost/regex.hpp".

       When  the  --scan  option  is used, a list of (probably non-boost) files to scan for Boost
       dependencies, the files in the module list are not therefore copied/listed.

   File dependencies
       C++ source files are scanned for #includes, all #includes present in the Boost source tree
       will then be scanned for their dependencies and so on.

       C++  source  files  are  associated with the name of a library, if that library has source
       code (and possibly build data), then include that source in the dependencies.

       C++ source files are checked for dependencies on Boost.Test (for example to  see  if  they
       use cpp_main as an entry point).

       HTML  files  are  scanned  for  immediate  dependencies  (images and style sheets, but not
       links).

   HTML report contains:
       - all the licenses in effect, plus the files using each license, and the copyright holders
       using each license

       - any files with no recognizable license (please report these to the Boost mailing lists)

       -  any  files  with  no  recognizable  copyright holders (please report these to the Boost
       mailing lists)

       - all the copyright holders and the files on which they hold copyright

       - file dependency information - indicates the reason for the inclusion of  any  particular
       file in the dependencies found

OPTIONS

       --boost=path
              sets the location of the Boost tree to path

       --scan treat  the  module  list  as a list of (possibly non-boost) files to scan for Boost
              dependencies

       --cvs  only copy files under CVS version control

       --unix-lines
              make sure that all copied files use Unix style line endings

EXAMPLES

       bcp scoped_ptr /foo
              Copies boost/scoped_ptr.hpp and dependencies to /foo.

       bcp boost/regex.hpp /foo
              Copies boost/regex.hpp and all dependencies including the  regex  source  code  (in
              libs/regex/src)  and  build files (in libs/regex/build) to /foo.  Does not copy the
              regex documentation, test or example code.

       bcp regex /foo
              Copies the full regex lib (in  libs/regex)  including  dependencies  (such  as  the
              Boost.Test source required by the regex test programs) to /foo.

       bcp regex config build /foo
              Copies the full regex lib (in libs/regex) plus the config lib (libs/config) and the
              build system (tools/build) to /foo including all the dependencies.

       bcp --scan --boost=/boost foo.cpp bar.cpp boost
              Scans the [non-boost] files foo.cpp and bar.cpp for Boost dependencies  and  copies
              those dependencies to the sub-directory boost.

       bcp --report regex.hpp boost-regex-report.html
              Creates   a  HTML  report  called  boost-regex-report.html  for  the  Boost  module
              regex.hpp.
