OK I've tried this, and echoing it says

images_location I:\boost-sandbox\tools\quick_auto_dox_index\libs\quick_auto_dox_index\doc\html

as expected.

So in my jamfile I have (to get the location of my images for both html and pdf)


In my Quickbook I have


but I don't get the image displayed and the image info (split to avoid word wrap) is


%5C doc%5Chtml/


There seems to be a (to me) unexpected (and unwanted) ../ before my_image.png

(and of course the confusing %C is caused by nasty Windows backslashing :-( )

So it doesn't display the image even if my_image.png is at /doc/html and/or /doc/ :-(

Is this a valid file specification? Windows explorer says "The file name is not valid."

So what am I doing wrong? Or is the Quickbook call causing this?


PS (In the math toolkit you used a template and wrote out the

[template graph[name] '''<inlinemediaobject>
<imageobject role="html">
<imagedata align="center" fileref="../graphs/'''[name]'''.png"></imagedata>
<imageobject role="print">
<imagedata align="center" fileref="../graphs/'''[name]'''.svg"></imagedata>

which is neat, but not necessarily what the casual users wants).
