Boost-Build :

[cross-posted, but it seemed appropriate]


just wanted to bring this one up: I've come across some problems putting
boost source to an OpenVMS system: Filenames cannot include more than one
dot ('.') - i.e. names like <whatever>.cpp.html aren't allowed. The only
exception is (naturally) in directory specifications, e.g:

I do realize that VMS platforms might not be of highest priority, but it
sure would be nice to be compatible. And, one never knows, when(ever) the
IA64 OpenVMS port is completed we might have a revival ;-)

[... and I've not even been able to start _building_ the boost libraries
yet - I guess I'll be in for a whole lot more of problems then ...]

Regards // Johan
