Subject: [Boost-build] [documnetation error?] linking with a prebuilt library
From: Thorsten Ottosen (nesotto_at_[hidden])

Dear all,

I was trying to link with a prebuilt library. But somehow the file is
not passed correctly on to the compiler. I looked at

which states I can do something like

  lib a : : <variant>release <file>/pool/release/ ;
  lib a : : <variant>debug <file>/pool/debug/ ;

but this doesn't work. I have to say

   lib a : : <variant>release:<file>/pool/release/ ;
   lib a : : <variant>debug:<file>/pool/debug/ ;

Could this be an error in the documentation?

best regards
