Description

There seem to be changes in Boost 1.8x.x boost::filesystem that break the compilation of Wt 4.1x.x library and some Wt examples (on Windows using clang):

| std::filesystem::directory_iterator

After investigating forever, fortunately I found out that this can be fixed easily:

In file src/web/FileUtils.C just add the missing include:

#include <boost/filesystem/operations.hpp>
#include <boost/filesystem/directory.hpp>

The same goes for examples/filetreetable/FileTreeTableNode.C and there is an error that I could not resolve:

28 | : WTreeTableNode(path.leaf().string(), createIcon(path)),
| ~~~~ ^
1 error generated.

Also the header boost/filesystem/convenience.hpp was removed with boost 1.85.0, which affects:

examples/wt-homepage/SourceView.C
examples/wt-homepage/ExampleSourceViewer.C
