Thanks for both (including spotting the gratuitous colon ;-( )
Obviously I should be using the cxxstd method (avoiding the confusing C++ Std
syntax difference between MS and *nix) and I have done that successfully both
Finally I have compiled, linked and run my example using 5 compilers, 4 C++
standard versions, debug and release, 32 and 64-bit in one run
But if you want to sell B2, I feel very strongly you have do very much better on
providing EXAMPLES, EXAMPLES, EXAMPLES.
You can never, ever have too many examples, especially with a bizarre syntax
like bjam, growded-like-topsy B2, and how-not-to-do-it syntaxes of the build
Thanks again for all your work on this powerful tool and all the help to me.
PS Reminds me what a disaster the use of track 8 as a parity bit on paper tape
was - with that extra bit we could/would/should have had more symbols in the
character set to make syntaxes simpler and better.
