What CentOS 6 package name do I need to install boost header files:

yum install boost doesn't seem to work. Is there a special compiler directive I need to use to point to the include files? Or is there another package to install?

A good method of checking if the header files are available in a package (CentOS or RHEL): yum search $PROGNAME | grep dev.

Figured it out:

yum install boost-devel
