Hi guys,

We're using bjam on a myriad of unix platforms (ibm, sgi, sun, linux, tru64)
and it works just fine. Now developers also will use the same system on
windows in msvc but we were wondering what kind of functionality will be lost
(in msvc) through using bjam instead of the build-system inside the msvc ide

AFAIK the msvc build system (nmake I believe) generates a lot of extra
information (.pdb ...) that is used inside the IDE to provide the user with a
function-call-tree etc.

Could someone with bjam experience on windows provide me some info on how to
use bjam on windows without (or minimally) cripling the msvc/ide ?
