Tonight I decided to test against a MinGW compiler. I added
using gcc : mingw : /tools/MinGW/bin/g++.exe ;
to my user-config.jam
Then I tried
and all heck broke loose. It actually issued commands that looked
"c:\tools\MinGW\bin\g++.exe" "g++" ...
Eventually, with no assistance from documentation, I figured out that
I couldn't call my toolset gcc-mingw. So I renamed it:
using gcc : 3.4.2 : /tools/MinGW/bin/g++.exe ;
works as expected except that I see gcc-mingw-3.4.2 in target paths.
What would I do if I also had a cygwin gcc-3.4.2 installed? I don't
Since I do see gcc-mingw-3.4.2 in my target paths, I thought I'd try
which again breaks in a strange way.
What all of this does and how to use it needs to be explained and
documented by someone who understands it.
