Jam/MR — Make(1) Redux


ftjam [-a] [-g] [-n] [-q] [-v] [-d debug] [-f jambase] [-j jobs] [-o actionsfile]
[-s var=value] [-t target] [target ...]


Jam is a program construction tool, like make(1).

Jam recursively builds target files from source files, using dependency information and
updating actions expressed in the Jambase file, which is written in jam's own interpreted
language. The default Jambase is compiled into jam and provides a boilerplate for common
use, relying on a user-provide file "Jamfile" to enumerate actual targets and sources.


-a Build all targets anyway, even if they are up-to-date.

-d n Enable cummulative debugging levels from 1 to n. Interesting values are:


Show actions (the default)


Show "quiet" actions and display all action text


Show dependency analysis, and target/source timestamps/paths


Show shell arguments


Show rule invocations and variable expansions


Show directory/header file/archive scans


Show variable settings


Show variable fetches


Show variable manipulation, scanner tokens

-d +n Enable debugging level n.

-d 0 Turn off all debugging levels. Only errors are not suppressed.

-f jambase
Read jambase instead of using the built-in Jambase. Only one -f flag is
permitted, but the jambase may explicitly include other files.

-g Build targets with the newest sources first, rather than in the order of
appearance in the Jambase/Jamfiles.

-j n Run up to n shell commands concurrently (UNIX and NT only). The default is 1.

-n Don't actually execute the updating actions, but do everything else. This
changes the debug level default to -d2.

-o file Write the updating actions to the specified file instead of running them (or
outputting them, as on the Mac).

-q Quit quickly (as if an interrupt was received) as soon as any target build

-s var=value
Set the variable var to value, overriding both internal variables and variables
imported from the environment.

-t target Rebuild target and everything that depends on it, even if it is up-to-date.

-v Print the version of ftjam and exit.
