Subject: [Boost-users] Generating PDF from QuickBook?
From: Nat Goodspeed (nat_at_[hidden])

I'm sorry, this must be a FAQ, but my Google search turned up mail
from 2009 advising me to cd to libs/xxx/doc and run
../../../b2 pdf

When I do that in a new modular Boost tree, I get the following errors:

/Users/nat/boost-git/tools/build/src/tools/boostbook.jam:704: in
construct from module object(boostbook-target-class)@1466
error: Cannot build documentation type 'pdf'.

/Users/nat/boost-git/boost-build.jam:17: in module scope from module

Is there some incantation I can apply to produce PDF output?
