Subject: Re: [Boost-build] run versus unit-test

I wish I could switch to the rule ‘run’ either. Our code tends to
crash, deadlock and show other interesting things sometimes. So it’s
very convenient for us to have already built executable binary to
investigate it with gdb. Using the rule ‘run’, I needed to modify the
appropriate Jamfile, and build the binary in the second pass. That is
very inconvenient.

But the rule ‘unit-test’ prepares the binary without additional
efforts. That’s why I’m going to use ‘unit-test’ in our new projects.
