Kylix toolset


Boost.Build's Kylix toolset supports the Borland C++ linux compiler.

Configuration Variables

The kylix toolset responds to the following variables which can be set in the environment or configured on the jam command-line using -sVARIABLE_NAME=value:

Variable Name Semantics Default Notes
KYLIX_ROOT The directory in which kylix was installed. Normally this will be either /usr/local/kylix3 or ~/kylix3. (none) If not set the user must ensure that the environment variables required by Kylix are correctly set, normally this is achieved by sourcing the "kylixpath" shell script in the Kylix bin/ directory.
