Hi Volodya,
as you stated I have no chance to use V1, in case of #include
dependencies, what is the exact case in my project. I will start to
experiment on V2 on go over the examples. Thanks.

are different versions like FTJam and PJam. Are their documents
applicable to Bjam, at least at the beginning.
