Subject: Re: [Boost-build] How to use generators to CPP and LIB

Hello again,

Perhaps I'm missing something obvious or what I want to do isn't possible?

Have I been clear in my description? The essential problem I'm trying
to solve is to use one source-type to produce two different
target-types. Where one target-type is H and is compiled into my
target exe, and the other is a LIB containing different code that is
ultimately compiled into the same exe.

Is this even possible? Is this documented somewhere?

Thanks in advance for your help,
