As long as Intel don't change their name this should all work out fine :-)
The use of the subfeature <platform>linux in the naming of <toolset>intel
brings up a few issues with conditional properties. Since conditional
properties are currently being discussed I will mention them now.
The simplest syntax using <toolset>intel-linux work fine as expected.
exe test : tests.cpp
In the documentation a comma seperated syntax is defined for conditional
property ( "," property ) * ":" property
results in the error
intel,<platform>linux" is not a known value of feature <toolset>
Other syntaxes that explicity mention the platform subfeature also fail in
All this is tested with the latest CVS HEAD. Maybe I am just suffering from
total syntax confusion?
All the best,
