I am looking for some guidance from people who have managed to integrate
Boost.Build (the MSVC toolset) into Microsoft Visual Studio
(specifically Visual C++ 2005).

I have searched through the archives for previous posts to the list.
The most notable thread I can find is:

Based on advice from this thread and from the Boost.Build manual I have
managed to setup Visual C++ 2005 to use a makefile project and have
setup the various commands that it calls like:

Build Command Line - %some_path%\bjam_setup.bat && %some_path%\bjam.exe
Clean Command Line - %some_path%\bjam_setup.bat && %some_path%\bjam.exe

These work. I can successfully compile a simple hello world program
(the one mentioned here -

I am unsure what parameters I should pass for the "Rebuild All Command
Line"? Is this simply a case of passing the clean all parameter?

Also I am interested to know if anyone has configured the Debugging
section of the Makefile Property Pages? I vaguely remember that someone
posted a solution for this but for the life of me I cannot find the post
in the archives.

Is there anything else that people find useful setting up when using
Boost.Build with Visual Studio?
