xinclude links incorrect

Reported by: troy Owned by: djowel
Milestone: Boost 1.39.0 Component: quickbook
Version: Boost 1.38.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


I'm trying to generate docs for proto manually. I'm on the trunk. Proto's 'proto.qbk' contains the line

[xinclude reference.xml]

which is in the same directory as proto.qbk itself:

% ls -l /home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/src/libs/proto/doc/proto.qbk -rw-r--r-- 1 troy troy 11250 Jan 24 06:54 /home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/src/libs/proto/doc/proto.qbk

% ls -l /home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/src/libs/proto/doc/reference.xml -rw-r--r-- 1 troy troy 36374 Jan 24 06:54 /home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/src/libs/proto/doc/reference.xml

I cd to a build directory parallel to the source tree, and generate the xml with quickbook. I've hacked some couts into the xinclude action:

% cd /home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/build/libs/proto/doc && ../../../bin/quickbook --output-file=proto.xml /home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/src/libs/proto/doc/proto.qbk Generating Output File: proto.xml infile=/home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/src/libs/proto/doc/proto.qbk outdir=/home/troy/Projects/boost/trunk/build/libs/proto/doc/. returning path=../../../../../src/libs/proto/doc/reference.xml

I doublecheck the path to reference.xml in the generated proto.xml:

% grep reference.xml proto.xml

<xi:include href="../../../../../src/libs/proto/doc/reference.xml" />

And I check the path:

% ls ../../../../../src ls: cannot access ../../../../../src: No such file or directory

Wrong. There is one ../ too many:

% ls ../../../../src BuildSlave?.cmake Jamroot Welcome.txt boost/ boost.png doc/ libs/ project-config.jam tools/ CMakeLists.txt LICENSE_1_0.txt bin.v2/ boost-build.jam* index.htm more/ rst.css wiki/ INSTALL README.txt bjam* boost.css dist/ index.html people/ status/

workaround: use absolute paths
