Thats right. It's nice to have an out-of-the-box working code -- with
any build system. On the other side each build system can support
some defines.

I know the common solution with a top-level header, but this seems a
nice place to discuss this. Boost.Build V2 is a nice build system and
it's not only for use in a single direction -- it can also influence
coding standards. Each boost library has this ability (for me).

Many windows users doesn't understand dynamic link libraries (i'm
teaching something linke this for many beginner). We can simply
establish (and document) a standard. Unique project names make sense
for unique defines -- the code will then reflect the name of the

class LIBMYPROJECT anything {

Many Thanks for your answers,
