110 To run every library's regression tests, issue <command>pushd status;

112 120/50 SBU, one/four cores) and use a very large disk space (up to
113 40 GB). You can use the <parameter>-jN</parameter> switch to
114 speed them up.

132 fixes a header to overcome a problem with Qt's moc command. It
133 is necessary for building some KDE packages.

135
136 <para>
137 <parameter>threading=multi</parameter>: This parameter ensures that
138 <application>Boost</application> is built with multithreading support.
139 </para>
140
141 <para>
142 <parameter>link=shared</parameter>: This parameter ensures that only
143 shared libraries are created, except for libboost_exception and
144 libboost_test_exec_monitor which are created as static. Most people
145 will not need the static libraries. Indeed most programs using
146 <application>Boost</application> only use the headers. 0mit
147 this parameter if you do need static libraries.

151 <option>-jN</option>: This switch may be added to the
152 <command>b2</command> command lines, to run up to N processes in
153 parallel.
