Nope, my mistake. I was misreading my own quote! ;-)

This was just one of the complications I didn't want to tackle at the time.

It's fairly well-documented in the build system docs.

It's easy to learn, and I'm here to help.
You can run little experiments by doing jam -f<your-own-file> to see how the
language works. Use the ECHO built-in command to dump results, e.g.:

rule foo
    ECHO $(1[2]) $(2[1]) ;
foo a b : c d ;

would type "b c" (and "don't know how to make 'all'").
