Hi list,

Apologises if this should not be posted.

Quite a while ago I stumbled across this website and have been going back
every now and then, he publishes some good articles from time to time. (I
originally found the site when searching for information on Boost.Test and

The specific article I think is worth reading is located here:

The title is: "The Quest for the Perfect Build System"

Although the article writer used Jam during the comparison he did mention
Bjam. I thought I would link it here because it talks favourably about jam
and I guess bjam would have much the same performance.

In the article these are the build systems he compares:
* Visual Studio (VC++)
* Make (g++)
* Jam (g++)
* Jam (VC++)
* Scons (g++)
* Scons (VC++)

It could be a useful link to put on the Bjam web page for new users who
might be looking to use a new build system.
