Subject: [Boost-build] [boost-build] Using glob rule on automatically generated files
From: Darren Garvey (darren.garvey_at_[hidden])

I'm using a script to generate some files and then using an install rule to
copy generated headers around.

I'm having a problem with the [ glob *.hpp ] rule being evaluated before the
SHELL command that generates the .hpp files runs. Sounds exactly like this

Is the conclusion that it's best doing this outside of Boost Build entirely?
Have things changed and there is a way to make this work nicely?

Any help would be much appreciated.
