Subject: [Boost-build] Only "static" Boost tests
From: Kuhl, Brian (brian.kuhl_at_[hidden])

This is the answer to my earlier post, where I asked if there was any additional feature that would skip tests specifically designated as <link>shared. I was a little annoyed that

cd status
../b2 link=static

did not do this.

In my case I have some processor configurations where VxWorks does not support shared libraries, and every test with a shared link will fail. So I'd like to skip those tests.

My solution was to add a feature to my

feature.feature static-only
    : on
    : optional composite propagated

feature.compose <static-only>on
    : <link>static

project : requirements <static-only>on,<link>shared:<build>no ;


./b2 static-only=on

Does what I need.
