Subject: [Boost-build] How to use generators to CPP and LIB
From: Duncan Rance (gmane_at_[hidden])

Hi there,

I am trying to do something with generators but I'm stuck. I'd really
appreciate some help.

What I've got so far is, in a module called resources.jam, something
like this:

type.register RESTXT : txt ;
generators.register-standard resources.genenumh : RESTXT : H ;
generators.register-standard resources.pkgdata : RESTXT : LIB ;

What I need to do is use a .txt file to produce a header file and a
static library. The header file is to be used in a few places,
including the code used to create the LIB. But there's more to go in
the LIB than just the header. If you're interested, I'm using ICU's
resource bundling tools

As you can probably imagine, there is an ambiguity between
builtin.lib-generator and resources.pkgdata.

How can I do this in boost build?

Thank you,
