Subject: [Boost-build] Copy TCL script using install rule
From: Johan Nilsson (r.johan.nilsson_at_[hidden])

I've got a medium-sized project in which I'm using Boost.Build. Applicable

- Boost.Build from Boost 1.34.1
- bjam is 3.1.14 (should also be from Boost 1.34.1 release)

My project consists of a number of c++ programs and libraries, but I'd like
to integrate the "build" of a TCL script into the build. Simply, what I'd
like to do is to use the install rule to copy the script into the dedicated
install directory.

This is an excerpt from my Jamroot:

install bin
        : # targets
        $(bin-targets) # includes TCL script target below
        : # requirements
This is my first attempt at a Jamfile for the TCL script:
import common ;
import path ;
path-constant SRC : ../src ;
constant APP : guicli ;
local sources = [ path.join $(SRC) guicli.tcl ] ;
make $(APP) : $(sources) : common.copy ;
The script gets copied to the variant directoy during build, but is not 
included among the installed files. I guess the "<install-type>EXE" in 
Jamroot's install rule invocation might be the culprit, but I don't know how 
to properly work around this.
