I'm a jam newbie and, therefore, started reading the "Getting Started
with Jam/MR" tutorial available from Perforce's web site. However, I
found that some examples work with Perforce's original jam but not
with the jam as part of Boost 1.29.0. The source code of a file called
test reads

rule MyRule
TouchFile $(1) ;

actions TouchFile
touch $(1)

MyRule test.output1 ;
MyRule test.output2 ;
MyRule test.output3 ;

When I run "jam -ftest test.output2" with Boost's jam (or bjam) I get
the error messages
don't know how to make all
...found 1 target...
...can't find 1 target...
whereas I get the expected messages
...found 1 target(s)...
...updating 1 target(s)...
TouchFile test.output2
...updated 1 target(s)...
when using Perforce's jam. Am I doing something wrong or is this a
bug/feature in Boost's Jam?
