Hi all!

I've committed the QuickBook toolset to CVS (as

The toolset depends on boostbook and thus requires that BoostBook be
properly set up. After that is taken care of,

using quickbook ;
boostbook my_docs : my_docs_source.qbk ;

By default the quickbook executable will be compiled from source using
the default toolset in release mode. To avoid generating the executable
from source you can set up the toolset from your site/user-config.jam
like this

using quickbook : quickbook ;

, if 'quickbook' can be found in your path, or like this

using quickbook : /full/path/to/quickbook ;

, otherwise.

QuickBook is a WikiWiki style documentation tool geared towards C++
documentation using simple rules and markup for simple formatting tasks.
QuickBook extends the WikiWiki concept. Like the WikiWiki, QuickBook
documents are simple text files. A single QuickBook document can
generate a fully linked set of nice HTML and PostScript/PDF documents
complete with images and syntax- colorized source code.

Right now QuickBook is able to syntax-colorize C++ and python sources!

Where can I find QuickBook ?

In current boost CVS, under boost/tools/quickbook:

I must thank Vladimir Prus for the help he gave me! And it is never too
much to say how great BBv2 is becoming!

Comments, complaints and error reports are appreciated ;)

Best regards,
