Haven't tried this but it should work...

I need to (re-)generate some tables as *.qbk files before building the documentation proper.

writes the files

How do I ensure that

1  The files are only re-generated when the source .cpp has changed ( been edited).

2  The files are written before the main Quickbook is processed to xml with

xml fixed_point
    <dependency>autodoc # doxygen

I looks as though I need a <dependency>

but I can't see what the target would be called.


3  I may have more than one .cpp file to run.  How can I run all the .cpp in the (doc/) folder?

Use an an alias and glob+run each.
