Most probably, you are looking for Boost.Build manual. This document is not meant to be read standalone and will only confuse you. Boost.Build manual refers to specific sections when necessary.
Boost.Jam (BJam) is the low-level build engine tool for Boost.Build. Historically, Boost.Jam is based on on FTJam and on Perforce Jam but has grown a number of significant features and is now developed independently, with no merge back expected to happen, and little use outside Boost.Build.
This is version 3.1.18 of BJam and is based on version 2.4 of Jam/MR:
