Not being an expert and not having run regression tests before I was
impressed by how simple regression.py is to use, once I found out about
Its a bit counter intuitive how the --toolsets parameter for
regression.py doesn't seem to be passed on to bbv2.
Couldn't regression.py also auto generate the user-config.jam if its not
found, like the configure script for building a boost release does?
Anyway as long as the instructions at
are updated with respect to user-config.jam, its reasonably simple as it is.
