Many thanks, Jurko,

This is almost what I need -- unfortunately, it flattens out the directories, so I don't get the directory tree.


CopyMeDir (d)
CopyMeDir/bar (d)
CopyMeDir/foo (d)


DestDir (d)

So bar and foo are lost.

Many thanks for your help!

   Hi Paul.

> What about copying directory trees in Bjam? I can't get "install" to achieve this.

   You can use the install rule in combination with any of the globbing rules.

   For example:

install somewhereOverTheRainbow
     [ path.glob-tree gugu/gaga/data : *.* : .svn ] ;

   Hope this helps.

   Best regards,
     Jurko Gospodnetiæ
