Boost.Build - software build tool

DESCRIPTION

Boost.Build 2015.07-git

Project-specific help:

Project has jamfile at Jamroot

Usage:

b2 [options] [properties] [install|stage]
Builds and installs Boost.

Targets and Related Options:

install
Install headers and compiled library files to the
=======
configured locations (below).
--prefix=<PREFIX>
Install architecture independent files here. Default; C:\Boost on Win32 Default; ,/usr/local/ on Unix. Linux, etc.
--exec-prefix=<EPREFIX> Install architecture dependent files here.
Default; <PREFIX>
--libdir=<DIR>
Install library files here. Default; <EPREFIX>/lib
--includedir=<HDRDIR>
Install header files here. Default; <PREFIX>/include
stage
Build and install only compiled library files to the
=====
stage directory.
--stagedir=<STAGEDIR>
Install library files here Default; ./stage

Other Options:

--build-type=<type>
Build the specified pre-defined set of variations of the libraries. Note, that which variants get built depends on what each library supports.
-- minimal -- (default) Builds a minimal set of
variants. On Windows, these are static multithreaded libraries in debug and release modes, using shared runtime. On Linux, these are static and shared multithreaded libraries in release mode.
-- complete -- Build all possible variations.
--build-dir=,DIR/
Build in this location instead of building within the distribution tree. Recommended!
--show-libraries
Display the list of Boost libraries that require build and installation steps, and then exit.
--layout=<layout>
Determine whether to choose library names and header locations such that multiple versions of Boost or multiple compilers can be used on the same system.
-- versioned -- Names of boost binaries include
the Boost version number, name and version of the compiler and encoded build properties. Boost headers are installed in a subdirectory of <HDRDIR> whose name contains the Boost version number.
-- tagged -- Names of boost binaries include the
encoded build properties such as variant and threading, but do not including compiler name and version, or Boost version. This option is useful if you build several variants of Boost, using the same compiler.
-- system -- Binaries names do not include the
Boost version number or the name and version number of the compiler. Boost headers are installed directly into <HDRDIR>. This option is intended for system integrators building distribution packages.
The default value is 'versioned' on Windows, and
'system' on Unix.
--buildid=,ID/
Add the specified ID to the name of built libraries. The default is to not add anything.
--python-buildid=,ID/
Add the specified ID to the name of built libraries that depend on Python. The default is to not add anything. This ID is added in addition to --buildid.
--help
This message.
--with-<library>
Build and install the specified <library>. If this option is used, only libraries specified using this option will be built.
--without-<library>
Do not build, stage, or install the specified <library>. By default, all libraries are built.

Properties:

toolset=toolset
Indicate the toolset to build with.
variant=debug|release
Select the build variant
link=static|shared
Whether to build static or shared libraries
threading=single|multi
Whether to build single or multithreaded binaries
runtime-link=static|shared
Whether to link to static or shared C and C++ runtime.

General command line usage:

b2 [options] [properties] [targets]
Options, properties and targets can be specified in any order.

Important Options:

* --clean Remove targets instead of building * -a Rebuild everything * -n Don't execute the commands, only print them * -d+2 Show commands as they are executed * -d0 Suppress all informational messages * -q Stop at first error * --reconfigure Rerun all configuration checks * --debug-configuration Diagnose configuration * --debug-building Report which targets are built with what properties * --debug-generator Diagnose generator search/execution

Further Help:

The following options can be used to obtain additional documentation.
* --help-options Print more obscure command line options. * --help-internal Boost.Build implementation details. * --help-doc-options Implementation details doc formatting.
