Hi again,

Perhaps you could help me a bit more?

I tried creating a Jamfile.v2 for my book. Here it is:

using quickbook ;
xml mixin_doc : mixin.qbk ;
boostbook mixin : mixin_doc ;
install html ;

It successfully generateates mixin_doc.xml but doesn't generate any
html. Here's the output:

warn: Unable to construct ./mixin
...found 7 targets...
...updating 4 targets...
common.mkdir bin
common.mkdir bin/gcc-4.6
common.mkdir bin/gcc-4.6/debug
quickbook.quickbook-to-boostbook bin/gcc-4.6/debug/mixin_doc.xml
Generating Output File: bin/gcc-4.6/debug/mixin_doc.xml
...updated 4 targets...

Am I missing something?
