Boost-Build :

Dear all,

I am new to Jam and Boost.Build so I apologize if this is not the proper
forum to ask these questions.

I've been looking at the examples and documentation but I haven't found any
that solves my problem
(I'm not complaining, just pointing out a fact :-)).

I am using boost-build 2.0-m5 and I wanted to use a stage rule with <tag>.
It seems that this is not implemented in v2, is that correct?

So, I have tried something like :

lib Platform .... ;

stage bin

and what I get is:

C:/win32app/boost-build/new\stage.jam:51: in construct from module
object(stage-target-class)@1 error: <name> property cannot be specified when
staging several targets
C:/win32app/boost-build/new\targets.jam:834: in
object(stage-target-class)@1.generate from module
C:/win32app/boost-build/new\targets.jam:446: in generate-really from module
C:/win32app/boost-build/new\targets.jam:415: in
object(main-target)@5.generate from module object(main-target)@5
C:/win32app/boost-build/new\targets.jam:197: in
object(project-target)@2.generate from module object(project-target)@2
C:/win32app/boost-build/new\targets.jam:197: in
object(project-target)@3.generate from module object(project-target)@3
C:/win32app/boost-build\build-system.jam:161: in load from module
C:\win32app\boost-build\kernel\modules.jam:296: in import from module
C:\win32app\boost-build\kernel\bootstrap.jam:122: in boost-build from module
C:\win32app\boost-build\boost-build.jam:1: in module scope from module

Is it possible to do this with the current version?
If not, and if you think it is worth it, I am avalable to try and implement

Many thanks in advance,
