Subject: [Boost-build] testing.launcher with arguments
From: George Georgiev (george.georgiev.sf_at_[hidden])

I would like to execute my tests with a specific launcher. I am using
<testing.launcher> for that. The problem is that valgrind for example
expects the arguments that are specific for it to be specified before the
executable and this is why <testing.arg> can not be used for that.

Any suggestions?

... or if there is no more elegant way to do that, how I can specify an
variable with space in it.
I tried to escape the space with \, to put it in quotes - nothing seems to

Something like:
local launcher_command = "valgrind --memcheck:foo=bar" ;

Thanks in advance
