Subject: [Boost-build] bjam - two outputs from the same file
From: Rao, Anant (Anant.Rao_at_[hidden])

If I have a source file that generates two types of output, is it possible to generate them using bjam?

Say, foo.cpp is like this:

void f()

#if defined(EXE)
int main()

Now, using the same file, I want to generate a binary (by defining EXE) as well as a lib.

How do I declare the targets in a bjam file?
