Hi Jurko,

Thanks a lot. I think I can use the "install" rule to achieve what I need. Just prototyped it successfully.

Many thanks,

Subject: Re: [Boost-build] Suppressing Variant Directories

   I do not believe this is the wanted behaviour for Boost Build based builds so I do not think there is an easy way to achieve this. The only thing that pops to mind is hacking Boost Build's functionality for constructing the target folder name, but I really do not see the point.

   If you do not separate different build variants... you forfeit most Boost Build features... E.g. no multiple-variant builds (debug/release) and you have to clean the build results before building a different variant.

   Having different variants split over multiple folders should not present problems... you should rarely if ever need to manually locate intermediate results stored there. Use the install rule to move final products into specific external folders.

   Hope this helps.

   Best regards,
     Jurko Gospodnetiæ
