I have a few bjam questions - if anyone could give me some pointers,
that would be very much appriciated ...
*1) local/global define*
: [ obj a : a.cpp ]
[ obj b : b.cpp ]
the define is not local so it is not used when compiling, I dont like
having to set the define on both objs - is it possible to set it once?
I have 2 targets that are 90% alike, the only difference is they link to
1 different library. Now I specify 2 targets which are basically copies.
Is it possible to define a general target once and specialize it for the
exe base : main.cpp lib-general ;
alias exe-a : base lib-a ;
alias exe-b : base lib-b ;
At the moment base is compiled/linked, this fails because some of the
symbols is in either lib_a or lib_b
*3) os detection*
The property <os>NT is defined, this is the only value allowed. However,
exe my_exe : main.cpp : <os>NT <define>GREAT ;
exe my_exe : main.cpp : <os>LINUX <define>BETTER ;
Can I do this?
*4) stage rename*
I could'nt find this one:
stage deliver : exe_a : <location>a <rename>base ;
In other words, I'd like to give a name to an install target on
