Support for windmc tool

Reported by: andysem Owned by: vladimir_prus
Milestone: Boost 1.44.0 Component: build
Version: Boost 1.42.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: mc windmc Cc:


It would be good if Boost.Build recognized the windmc tool that is available for MinGW and Cygwin toolsets. The documentation mentions[1] the mc-compiler feature that is supposed to alleviate the problem, but apparently this option doesn't work.

comment:1 Changed 7 years ago by andysem

The patch I attached does not detect the current toolset and thus does not automatically select the right message compiler for MinGW and Cygwin. I couldn't figure out how to do that.

Ugh, it looks like the patch broke compilation with MSVC.

comment:3 Changed 7 years ago by anonymous

I had to add "import mc;" in "tools\build\v2\tools\gcc.jam"...

comment:4 Changed 3 years ago by vaffa@…

It seems that even after four (4) years this patch still not included??

It seems that it is still needed:

Why does Boost.Build does not recognize MinGW windmc tool, why the mc-compile feature ( still not working and why this patch is not implemented at least it is not in Boost 1.55.
