First a thank you to all of you for your hard work on creating Boost.Build. I have a medium-sized cross-platform codebase, and I'm currently moving from our mixed collection of msvc project files and gnu makefiles to Boost.Build Jamfiles.
One question regarding the "unit-test" rule: is there an easy way to suppress output from the executable when it is run?
I have a large number of unit tests, some with quite a bit of output that I would like to suppress during builds. Currently I am doing this in my hand-made makefiles -- when a test fails, I run it again manually to see the output.
I realize the "run" rule will work for this, but the syntax is more cumbersome than for the "unit-test" rule.
