Subject: [Boost-build] custom generator problems
From: Michael Caisse (boost_at_[hidden])

I am trying to create a custom generator for a code generator.
The code generator takes a single description file in and
produces several CPP and HPP files.

The produced filenames are not known before hand; however, I
have them generated into a known directory. I was hoping to
path.glob the code generated files but I am starting to think
that this isn't going to work.

Before I devote much more time to this approach is this even possible?
Can I create rules that determine targets only after some
action is performed (the code generator runs and the directory is glob'd)?

Thank you for your consideration.
