No not exactly, sorry I did explain ist very precise in my fist mail.
Here is what I need to do for VxWorks:

C and C++ files are compiled normal with 'CPP -> OBJ' and 'C -> OBJ'

When creating an "executable" (it's more an loadable module for the
taget than an exe) all the object files created from a C++ source file
must be munched. The munching needs all these Objects for one
executeable at ones and creates one C file.
This resulting C file can be compiled with normal 'C-> OBJ' and and must
be included to the files which are linked into the "executable".

The munching looks for all static objects and creates a function to call
all the constructors and destructors for these. This functions are
called during the loading and unloading of the "executable".

So I created the the composing list rule 'OBJ -> LST' which collects all
Objects and since muching doesn't care if there are also Objects from C
files in the list I just added all objects. Then created the munch rule
    'LST -> C'. I compiled the resulting file and then linked all the
objects from the lst file and the additional object from the munching
into an "executable".
Therefore think ...

>>generators.register-composing vxworks.lst : OBJ STATIC_LIB : LST
>> : <toolset>vxworks ;
> this is: STATIC_LIB OBJ --> LST
> try:
> generators.register-composing vxworks.lst : LST : OBJ STATIC_LIB
> : <toolset>vxworks ;
... I need 'STATIC_LIB OBJ --> LST' ?

>>generators.register-standard vxworks.munch : LST : C :
> <toolset>vxworks ;
> this is: LST --> C
> try:
> generators.register-standard vxworks.munch : LST : C :
<toolset>vxworks ;
> # C --> LST
... and I need 'LST --> C' or should I create the from the munching
resulting C in a different way.

Thanks for your help.
