Subject: [Boost-build] "$" character in bjam string
From: dimak (dvb.kharkov_at_[hidden])

Could you please clarify how can I use "$" character inside bjam strings? I
supposed "\" escaping should work, but it does not.
For example, "text" variable gets empty value if we assign to it the
text = "[ wildcard \$(dir)/* ]" ;
where \$(dir) is NOT a variable name, but escaped "$" character and "(dir)".
Thanks for help,
