Hi all,

I'm trying to run the boost regression tests on a powerpc/linux based system.
Due to file system and memory size limitations I'm unable to deploy the whole
boost tarball contens and run them on-target.

Instead I'd like to run the compilation (using a cross-compiler) on my machine
and then upload and run the individual test binaries on the target.

I've found the testing.launcher property, but I seem to be unable to get this
configured in the user-config.jam. I'd like to be able to fill in a script that
uploads and runs the binary; e.g.

#! /bin/bash
scp $1 <IP>:/some/path &>/dev/null
ssh <IP> /some/path/$1
ssh <IP> rm /some/path/$1 &>/dev/null
exit $RC

I've tried adding an alias for unit-tests and capture-output but seem
to fail horribly.

Is this possible or am I overlooking another option of running the boost tests?
