Playing around with BB and bjam I came across and odd behaviour with the
-f option. This option allows one to override the built-in Jambase file
with a custom one.
When I run 'bjam -ffile', that is without intervening spaces, as
documented in --help-usage, bjam will pick file and everything runs
If, however, I run it as 'bjam -f file', with a space between, bjam will
still pick up the file argument appropriately, only this will confuse
boost-build into believing file is actually a target to build, thus
putting aside other targets:
...found 187 targets...
> bjam -f Jambase
...found 2 targets...
Is this intended?
