How to use boost asio library with Cygwin 64 bit

I am running Windows 10 64bit. Cygwin is 64 bit.

I installed boost from cygwin package manager.

I tried to compile test.cpp:

#include <boost/asio.hpp>
int
main(int argc, char**argv)
{
return 0;
}


using command

g++ -std=c++11 -Wall -g -D__USE_W32_SOCKETS D_WIN32_WINNT=_WIN32_WINNT_WIN7 test.cpp -o test.exe


but compile fails. It looks like posix is being used.

Any ideas why this fails?

Thanks to help from #cygwin IRC:

g++ -std=c++11 -Wall -g -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=500 test.cpp -o test.exe -lboost_system
