Boost-Build :

I wondered if someone could humor me and clarify a few things?

- bjam is an executable that can replace make in its most trivial
case. So if you wanted to compile a simple hello world example, all
you would need is bjam, a Jamfile, and the hello world source file.
Is this true?

- is a bunch of Jamfiles, containing rules, and targets to
provide higher level features for doing larger scale builds from
source code?

- Does bjam do everything that jam and ftjam do, but more?

- Do you have to use to use bjam?

- I have an executable that reads in an input file and produces .cpp
files (an autocoder). Does bjam lend itself to running the autocoder
then compiling the new source files?

Your input is really appreciated!
