Hi guys,

I need the ability to reference a pre-built object file as a source for exe and lib rules,
similar to the capability that is documented for LIB types using <file> property.
This arises in a cross-development environment that has to import some prebuilt objects from a different platform. Hoping to get lucky, I tried:

obj vprocn : : <hptns-arch>tnsr:<file>import/tns-r/import/aaavproc/vprocn.o ;

in my Jamroot and /root//vprocn as a exe source but, alas, no such luck.

Do I miss something obvious in the manual for how to do this?

Many thanks,
