I am trying to go along this way... although my slope is steep :-(
1) I am not able to derive from searched-lib-generator.
I am not sure why. I tried to ...
type.register BOOST_LIB : : SEARCHED_LIB ;
because in builtin.jam within the linking-generator I found the code
that deals with searchable libs. So I believe, in order to work with
all supported toolsets I need to derive the BOOST_LIB type from
SEARCHED_LIB, else the code in linking-generator won't work.
after having declared:
boost-lib boost_thread : : <name>boost_thread ;
this leads to the following output:
/home/roland/local/boost-build/kernel/class.jam:93: in new
*** argument error
* rule object(searched-lib-generator)@58.__init__ ( )
* called with: ( searched-lib-generator : : BOOST_LIB : : : : :
* extra argument searched-lib-generator
I also tried to register a custom generator, but I have no idea how
I could do that, since I have to derive from searched-lib-generator.
2) Is it possible at all to derive from searched-lib-generator ?
I suspect this will be possible:
class searched-lib-generator : generator
rule __init__ ( )
generator.__init__ searched-lib-generator : : SEARCHED_LIB ;
I cannot pass the BOOST_LIB type, because this generator isn't
supposed to accept any constructor parameters.
The only way I could think of, is by-passing the searched-lib
class boost-lib-generator : searched-lib-generator
rule __init__ ( )
generator.__init__ boost-lib-generator : : BOOST_LIB ;
But I seriosuly doubt this is allowed.
Any further help / ideas highly appreciated !
