Again about Example: 1-to-1 generator.
When trying to use this like here...

type.register ERR : err ;
generators.register-standard err.convert : ERR : H ;

... then the output is "...found 1 target..." and the defined action will be not executed.
Changing it to...

generators.register-standard err.convert : ERR : CPP ;

the action will be called. How do I use this for headers?

Another issue:

My script (inside of actions) does accept two parameters (input and output);
so I use $(>) and $(<). How can I access part of the file (path, filename, extension)?
Why? The script could do it by I intent to do something like --name=$(>).name
(filename.ext -> filename) But here I get!

What do I have to do for using CXX instead of CPP. Registering as a type
like above didn't work.
