Interesting, this caught me by surprise since I thought that cflags was only for C, cxxflags for C++ and compileflags for both.
It is documented that way at http://tinyurl.com/63rjal at least.
A small testing revealed that http://tinyurl.com/6zeyhu appears to be correct under my environment.
cflags affected both C and C++ and compileflags was rejected as an unknown feature.
The environment was as follows:
Boost.Build V2 (Milestone 12)
What would be the correct description of these features?
I appreciate all your input.
