I'm adding the docs for string_ref to Boost.Utility. (Ok, I added them a while back, but never got them building correctly).
Boost.Utility's docs are a mixture of hand-written HTML and Quickbook - declval, for example is generated by QB.
I duplicated the declval.qbk file, edited it, and then updated the Jamfile.
Unfortunately, when I run b2, I get an XML file in the bin.v2 directory, not an HTML file in the doc/html directory.
I'd appreciate it if someone could take a look at the Boost.Utility docs and let me know what I'm doing wrong.
Thanks in advance!
