How to specify boost include path?


I am looking for the cleanest way to specify a particular location from which to include an instance/version of the Boost libraries.

I currently have several versions installed / accessible to me on the machine that I am running my Gradle builds from (this is using the “cpp-application” plugin), and I don’t know how best to specify my boost include path (this is just for me to use some boost/core include files (e.g., noncopyable.h* — using C++11, no shared libraries or anything of the sort).

Please let me know if my question doesn’t make sense, or if you know of an advised way of accomplishing this (web references are sparse).

Thank you!

Bump. This forum feels quite inactive. Can anyone help with this?
