    I am using Boost test library now and find there are several libraries
    there:

    libboost_unit_test_framework-mgw46-1_47.a
    libboost_unit_test_framework-mgw46-mt-1_47.a
    libboost_unit_test_framework-mgw46-s-1_47.a

    what are differences between the 3 libraies (with "s", or with "mt",
    or no "mt" and "s")?

    also, for VC++ compiler, there is:

    boost_unit_test_framework-vc100-mt-1_47.dll

    but MinGW have:

    libboost_unit_test_framework-mgw46-mt-1_47.dll
    libboost_unit_test_framework-mgw46-1_47.dll

    Why MinGW have more?

    Shouldn't Boost discussion forums be a better place to ask about this?

    www.boost.org/community/
