I'm trying to set jam-based testing for the filesystem library I'm working
on. It requires a library.
I created a Jamfile in boost-root/libs/filesystem/build:
# Boost Filesystem Library Build Jamfile
subproject libs/filesystem/build ;
SOURCES = exception operations_posix_windows path_posix_windows ;
lib filesystem : ../src/$(SOURCES).cpp
: <include>$(BOOST_ROOT) <sysinclude>$(BOOST_ROOT)
: debug release
bjam in this directory appears to build the libraries as expected with all
I then added the following to my local copy of boost-root/status/Jamfile:
: [ run libs/filesystem/test/path_test.cpp
and invoked bjam: bjam -sTOOLS=msvc path_test
This resulted in link errors; the symbols from the library are undefined.
See error messages below (shortened to show only one error).
What am I doing wrong?
Where is <lib> documented for use in regression tests? I found docs for
using <lib> to reference a lib in the same Jamfile, but in an external
Jamfile. I tried just copying what threads and regex do, but that resulted
the in the unreferenced externals.
