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,
