Subject: [Boost-build] bjam - output path & -d+13
From: Rao, Anant (Anant.Rao_at_[hidden])

Couple of questions:

1. Is there a way to specify the location of bjam output (like .o/.obj, .dll, .exe etc), instead of bjam figuring it out? If so, what's the option?

Currently, if I change an option in bjam files (say, added multi-threading), the output dir changes. So, instead, I want to have the output always in a dir called, say, 'release'.

2. I'm using bjam -n -d+13 to see what why bjam thinks it has to build a particular entity. It's showing output, but I'm unable to understand it.
Last 3 lines I see:

fate change <p/home/stratify/.hudson/jobs/Textmining_CB/workspace/textmining/src/docservices/documentprocessors/WordCountFeatureLib/bin/gcc-4.3.3/release/debug-symbols-on/link-static>libWordCountFeatureLib.a set to newer (by timestamp)

fate change <pdocservices/documentprocessors/shared/unittests/bin/gcc-4.3.3/release/debug-symbols-on>UnitTests from newer to old (by timestamp)

fate change all from old to update

Could somebody help me what this is saying? In fact, it'll be great if you can provide what (string or pattern) I should to look for to see which entity is being built and why.

Thanks so much,
Anant Rao
