I am new to Boost.Build and I am introducing it as the build system
at my company. Many times, we need to run a tool after a program has
been generated. How would you suggest to do this?
I was thinking of a custom generator, which would essentially perform
the same task as built-in exe and lib generators, and run the additional
program. I thought it might be used along the following lines:
my-exe some_name : [ glob *.cpp ] : <post-run>tool ;
my-lib a_lib : [ glob *.cpp ] : <post-run>tool ;
However, I have no idea how to go about writing such a beast. Ideally,
it would simply inherit from the built-in exe and lib rules and change
properties or run the tool.
Can you please point me in the right direction?
