Subject: [boost] path of test-binary
From: dib (dib_ggml_at_[hidden])

within the tests of a (not-yet) boost-library, how can I find out the path
where b2 placed the binaries of the tests? Problem is the following:
Some of the tests need the path to a shared library, which is built
together with the tests.

In the lib/mylib/tests/Jamfile.v2 I have the following:

# our test lib for shared library tests
lib test_library : test_library.cpp ;

test-suite mylib
   # shared library
   [ run shared_library_load_test.cpp ]
   [ run shared_library_get_symbol_test.cpp ]

Inside shared_library_*_test.cpp I need something like this:

As decides by itself where to put the binary, i cannot
hardcode the path in the source-files.. Is there a way to get the path
from If not, how could I solve this problem?
