It searches for a configuration file in the current working directory only.Let's look at a simple Jamfile which can be used to build an executable as a rule you know already that the above Jamfile is actually built using a programming language. Build provides predefined rules - or functions if you like.As with functions in other programming languages it is possible to pass parameters.If there are some components which should be built with similar settings they can be stored in a Jamfile in a parent directory which will be automatically used if a component in a subdirectory is built. Build: could not find "boost-build.jam" --------------------------------------------------------------- Attempted search from C:\Users\Boris\Desktop up to the root Please consult the documentation at ' And you can always use a slash as a path separator - even if you are on Windows.
Please note that there must be a space between the path and the semicolon at the end of the line. You'll learn more about the syntax used in Jamfiles later in this article.
Build requires that there is a space around all tokens. common.mkdir bin common.mkdir bin\msvc-9.0 common.mkdir bin\msvc-9.0\debug compile-c-c bin\msvc-9.0\debug\bin\msvc-9.0\debug\msvc.manifest bin\msvc-9.0\debug\...updated 5 targets... A variant is a debug or release version of a program. rule (or, if you prefer, function) accepts a few more parameters which are optional. You can think of command line options which are always set and passed to commands run to build an executable. As a program can't be a debug and a release version at the same time does not expect mutually exclusive values there is no other set of executables generated.
