In an effort to actually learn Boost build and the bjam language I have
started with the tutorial.
"The configuration file b2 is looking for is called Jamfile.jam."
Is it not looking for 'jamfile.v2' instead ? Does Boost build look for a
jamfile under more than one name ? If so shouldn't all the possible
names be listed in the tutorial ?
"b2 climbs up parent directories until it finds a configuration file
Is not the top-level file just called "Jamroot" ? Does Boost build look
for a jamroot under more than one name ? If so shouldn't all the
possible names be listed in the tutorial ?
