I am creating a module with custom features, e.g.
feature a_feature : : free ;
When specifying values simultaneously at the command line, in the root
Jamfile, and in a subproject's Jamfile, the values get's appended to
the property set. When I try to retrieve the value in a rule, using
A_FEATURE = [ feature.get_values <a_feature> : $(requirements) ] ;
I end up with
a_feature: command_line_value, root_value, subproject_value
I've read in the boost build v2 about property refinement, but it's
not very clear to me what needs to be done for
a) specifying whether a feature gets overriden or not if one is trying
to set it multiple times.
b) what order is used to set value:
(2) following project Jamfile hierarchy.
I've tried to use the link-incompatible, but it doesn't work.
It seems that what I want to do is difficult with 'free' features...
Thanks a lot for your suggestions,
