simple hello.cpp program. I read all you need is a file called
jamfile with one line:

Main hello : hello.cpp

yet I get all kinds of messages (such as can't find boost-build.jam,
so I rename the jamefile, or use the -f option, and I get the

However, it failed to call the "boost-build" rule to indicate
the location of the build system.

On another run (I closed everything and rebooted) I now get:

jamfile:1: in module scope
rule Main unknown in module

I am lost please help.

Thanks. . .


PS. This compiles on MS and borland compilers.
