I'm not sure there is such rule.. ah wait, it's present in Boost.Build V1, and
I think it's not documented anywhere. For V2, similar functionality should be
part of the glob rule

something like

local all = [ glob */*.cpp */*/*.cpp ]

but a patch which enables wildcards in directory names is still lying on my
disk, uncommitted.

For Boost.Build V2, you can use the --help option, as mentioned at:

Running "bjam --help" would produce help on "--help";-)
